An experiment in the iconic Argentine decorative motif of fileteado, Just to show that I (occasionally) branch out into non-figure-related areas!
Drawing this sort of decoration is actually surprisingly difficult; a strong sense of flow, hierarchy, and proportion is essential to avoiding a confused mass of curls.
A style experiment, which I think turned out quite well! I’ve been considering for a long time the issue of trying to create tango illustrations that captures the energy of the dance, and here it seems to work. I have some more ideas for this knocking around, so stay tuned.
