Play Doodles - EZ
Jon Burgerman is a UK born, Brooklyn based artist who uses creativity as his primary medium. Jon is famous for his doodles, where he just grabs a pen, wiggles it over a piece of paper and sees what, or who, pops out. Thinking it would be interesting to see how this could translate into 3D, he grabbed a bunch of colourful Play Doh and tried to make some fun characters without any plan, allowing the medium to dictate the results, which was a whole gaggle of funny little dudes. They are ageless, genderless, raceless and clearly embody the fun Jon had in making them. From a half-eaten cookie and a laid back corn on the cob to many abstract and curious creatures that ooze personality.
When Jon and Jon started to talk about a collaboration it seemed like using the realized doodles made the most sense since they added such a colorful 3D aspect to the design. All of the characters were photographed and then built into a repeat resulting in a lively wallpaper that will bring cheer to many spaces.
