after "Circles, Everywhere" by Sam Sobel

Crayon, watercolor resist

Inspiration: I was instantly inspired while reading “Circles, Everywhere” by Sam Sobel (from the the Obsession issue). As an illustrator, I often enjoy the soothing and methodic rhythm of drawing shapes. These patterns then seem to unveil themselves in the world around me. I love finding a series of circles etched in the architecture of an old building, or as Sam Sobel so beautifully put it, “...the round shapes that bugs make in chewed leaves, the symmetry of their feast.”
