Philippines-based illustrator Kerby Rosanes used his black pens to create Geometric Beasts, a series of intricate drawings that beautifully fuse together animals and geometric shapes. Kerby’s entire collection of illustrations are available to view on Instagram, Facebook, and DeviantArt.
“Each piece is my take on breaking away from societal norms and just be who we truly are as unique individuals. I grew up in a community (and probably most people are) where your value as a person is based on various metrics and calculations just for you to qualify in a society that other people dictates you to be in. This “measured” life deprives us to take risks, to follow our passions and to do what we truly love.
I use geometry to symbolize the norms and simply because it’s the only math subject I enjoyed at school (lol). I always love drawing animals and in this case, they represent the concept of unleashing the “beast” within us – risk taker, wild and adventurous.”
