The Plan:


Theme: 26 Days - A life of a hermit farmer

Technique: Procreate /textures,brushes with analog feeling/

Context: Book, Postcards, Instagram posts




I am planning to explore a life of farmer living austerely in the wilderness. There would be a lot of funny situations and things happening. I have been drawing this kind of farmer character before the class, but I have been focused on his inner side - emotions, struggle, paranoia. It has had a little bit dark humour.

Examples: Here, Here or Here

This project is going to have more positive vibes. I have taken this as a prequel to the series I had started on my Instagram. So, this series will be depicting the age of innocence.
