Eye Magazine - Classicism

Eye Magazine - Classicism

One of three small drop-in illustrations I have just done for respected graphic design magazine Eye.

This was for a piece about what have been identified as the Seven Types of Design Inquiry. From folklore to theory, via Shamanism and the 'magpie instinct' for shiny things, graphic design seeks to understand itself in many different forms. Philosopher and critic John O'Reilly looks at the myriad ways designers present their lives and work - with a little help from the influential Seven Types of Ambiguity by New Criticism guru William Empson.

Classicism. Here, the need to look back and learn from the Masters.
