As an experiment, illustrator Christoph Niemann would spend his Sundays with an everyday object and a sheet of paper. Using his imagination and some basic art supplies, pennies became ice cream scoops. Scissors became legs. A sock became a dinosaur. You get the idea. Take a look at the gallery; visual puns are always fun.
Luckily for us, there’s a short documentary on his work called “Abstract: The Art of Design | Christoph Niemann: Illustration“. While the title may be clumsy in it’s use of orthographic punctuation, the video provides a fun look at the inner-thoughts and struggles of a working artist. An arts career isn’t always fancy shirts and champagne galas; there’s hard work involved too. If you think a career in the arts could be in your future, I recommend you take a look at it.
