AUTOMATIC DRAWINGS

In my 800 days of daily drawing challenge, I discovered that automatic drawings are something that I inclined towards to and enjoyable. I relate to Piet Mondrian’s suggestion that abstraction, which implies the destruction of the incidental, outward image of reality, could be used to portray a purer image of that reality and to represent a higher stage in evolution. In a way, my drawings are not of what we observed in our material world but possibly the true reality behind the illusions that make up the visible world.

DESMOND
DU IT BETTER

Motion / Graphic Designer + Instructor

is a multi-media artist  based in Atlanta, Georgia specializing in After Effects, Houdini and automation. He also enjoys teaching and runs a software tutorials YouTube channel called NoSleepCreative. He has a virtual fragment of his brain online here.

Desmond enjoys the grandeur of life and the perplexing human experience of who we are and where are we going. It is in his quest to communicate a thorough examination of our everyday life, and also the metaphysical underlying realities that exist in our minds and beyond our corporeal world.

Utilizing a blend of Buddhist and Islamic art ideas, surrealist automatism, and the wild cards he throws into his life decisions, his works relate to feeling rather than seeing. Through a mix of physical and digital processes, Desmond translates his visual language into works such as short films, title sequences, music videos, and various forms of graphic design.

Other than that, his hobbies include: playing the ukelele, boxing, an acousmatic experience while drinking coffee, and of course the occasional intoxication with good company.
