Using the outline of a silhouetted figure, Andrew Pommier juxtaposes the human shape with various forms of influences. This technique creates a simple, yet suggestive border between recognizable shapes and the images contained within them. One illustration takes on a particular macabre atmosphere as our attention encompasses the crimson skies in the background and then focuses in on the shadowy character centered in the portrait. The contrast in colors between figure and background draws the viewer's attention to the outlined characters with an energetic vibe.
Rather than drawing intricate details to illustrate facial expressions, Andrew Pommier turns to theme and energy to infuse his characters with emotions. The figure whose face is obscured by a cascade of brown hair suggests a shy and repressed temper. These illustrations by Andrew Pommier express intention and history through the juxtaposition between figure and imagery.
