A freelancer whose clients include Adobe, Apple and Samsung, Ori Toor loves nothing more than to doodle. His pieces in his ‘Gibberish #24’ series can take days, even months to create. “I can sometimes understand what was going through my mind at the time,” he tells Creative Boom. “It’s a bit like analysing your dreams. There’s logic but it’s a very personal one, although I hope it’s relatable somehow on a subconscious level.”
Each artwork starts organically with no thought as to how it might develop. “The process is just opening a new file in Photoshop and starting to draw lines,” he explains. “I don’t do any construction lines. I just draw. It’s all improvised because I find it more fun that way. Colouring is the same. Dropping colours with the paint bucket and changing them a lot until I’m happy.”
