Famous Quotes are Paired with Clever Illustrations

Famous Quotes are Paired with Clever Illustrations
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia-based illustrator Tang Yau Hoong has just released a brand new series where he pairs one of his older illustrations with a famous quote. A few years ago, we discovered Hoong and we quickly became fans after we saw his ability to cleverly incorporate negative space into many of his works. As he told us then, "I enjoy making illusion art because it has the ability to mislead us. We rely on sight in our lives and yet it is so fragile that we could easily be deceived by what we see." In one of our favorite new prints, Hoong takes one of Steve Jobs' famous quotes, "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish" and illustrates it by putting two half eaten apples next to each other. Within the negative space, one can subtly make out Steve Jobs' silhouette. As he tells us, "Most of them are old illustrations that I redrew to match the style I was looking for and the meaning of the corresponding quote. You can pick up these prints over at Hoong's shop.

Ahora los garabatos retoman el poder con una forma nueva e innovadora de presentar proyectos o ideas: el visual thinking, que vuelve a las raíces creativas del ser humano compartiendo ideas y explicando conceptos dibujando. Para poder entender el nuevo recurso hemos hablado con Scott Matthews, el director creativo de Dachis Group, una empresa internacional experta en visual thinking basada en EEUU. “Para mí, visual thinking es hacer lo abstracto entendible: coger ideas, pensamientos y conexiones de la cabeza de una persona y plasmarlo en algo sólido.”, dice Matthews. “Cuando podamos convertir este tipo de cosas en imágenes dibujadas en una pared las personas lo pueden ver, entender la conexión, comprender dónde va conectado todo y se hace muy claro. “Es lo mismo que cuando entras por la puerta grande de un centro comercial, verás un mapa grande que te marca donde estás.
