Apple Of My Eye

Idioms, am I right... Great subject matter Mikey.

I started this project by Google searching idioms, and I am sure I landed on the same site everyone else did. After digging through loads of idioms in alphabetical order I wrote down all the ones that caught my eye. I had quite a long list, so I began concepting.

Everything started out very literal. I wanted to get away from being so literal, so I listened to Mickey when he started talking about what we consume, Music, sports, internet. It was all very strong, so I revisited the idioms and one really made me think. "Apple of My Eye."

Why is it that when I hear "Apple" I think of the company before I think of the fruit it was named after. And so my concept began. I wanted to show how much apple consumes my life, and how much time my eyes spend staring at apple products.

Below are some process images. Hope you enjoy!
