Curvilinear Man

I had fun with free-form drawing today. I drew the curvy figure outline with one stroke, including the figure ‘8’ that I made into sun glasses. I’m not sure where I got the idea to make a cube, or how I decided to place it in the composition. I drew solid lines for the front facing square and used masking fluid for most of the bottom and back-facing squares. I used oil-based pens to strengthen the lines of the figure ‘8’, lines of the cube, the glasses ear piece (and the ear).

The contrast between the curved lines of the flatted silhouette and the illusion of a three-dimensional cube, inspired the name of this study.
