Shapes of Conscious is a creative experiment created by David Habben, a illustrator born in Oregon. The idea of the experiment is to start with a simple shape and then to fill that shape with a unique character. Here is what the author says about the project:
With this sketchbook, I’ve been challenging my creativity by starting first with a simple shape, drawn without the end goal in mind. Once the shape is drawn, I go about filling it with a character that develops a story of its own. The idea here is to get out of my own way, to let the drawing develop itself without forcing it into a desired narrative or purpose.
