Triangle Eye Sketch - Moleskine



So here is an eye sketch I did in my watercolor Moleskine a while back, almost two years ago in 2011. I really like the style I was experimenting with, part of it is influenced by a girl on Youtube who did drawings and doodles about geometry and math. She goes by the name of Vi Hart. The eye sketch itself was a big deal for me at the time because I think I free handed it without reference and I remember being so stoked about it. I especially love the surprised emotion in the eye :]

 Thinking back on it now, I can definitely see I was influenced by the book I was reading at the time, The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznik. I think its great to look back on your art sometimes and reminisce about the things you liked about it and your influences.
