ContourDrawing - Tastemaker Status

This drawing technique makes for quirky graphics & eye-catching patterns.


Contour drawing is an art technique where artists are challenged to create without lifting their pencil. This creates one continuous line (another name for technique), hence the distinct geometric, but fluid, style. Though this technique has been around for a while, its been recently embraced by fashion as a cool decorative motif. Get the look below:
