VP# 19: Excessive Ear Wax

VP_Excessive_Ear_Wax

Not sure if this is a pun or more of a statement on men getting old. That’s right guys, once you hit thirty you need a weekly supply of Q-tips to keep your ears clean and the hair? Good lord you can go to bed and upon awaking you have a four inch timber sticking out of your ear.  You need a pruning shears to trim it. Any bigger and Jack will be climbing it.

The inspiration for this one comes by way of Ben Bikin’ (see image below) a spiffy biker from Sparta, WI. You may be thinking “what the hell,” how did Ben inspire ear wax guy? Well, I had no idea how this visual would look until I found my Ben image and instantly I knew I had to do a vintage look— big top tent, horizontal stripes, old weights, etc. It pays to take those side trips to see crazy stuff. You just never know what and when it will inspire you.

For my design students I choose a symmetrical layout (formal) and used repetition by repeating the mustache curly shapes on the eyebrows and ear hairs.

Ben Bikin' is located in Sparta WI and is located on the original Bikes to Rails Trails.
