There are all types of illustration techniques out there, from doodle art (opens in new tab) to ink drawings (opens in new tab), and we're always keen to discover new variations on a theme. This series entitled 'Modern Mantra' takes a literal approach, using the name of the subject to make up the drawing itself.
Swedish artist Thomas Broomé (opens in new tab) is known for using repetition as a recurring technque. The repetition used here becomes a mantra and aims to create needs and arouse desires so strong that they overshadow existential issues of far greater importance. It's a take on cosumerism, if you will.
We're in awe of the patience and skill needed to complete an illustration project such as this. Just take a look at the likes of 'tapestry' placed within the drawing - the words are so small, yet they make an instant impact.
