New drawings: Libidinosus

Libidinous: "lustful," mid-15c., from L. libidinosus "full of desire, lustful," from libido

1. full of sexual lust; lustful; lewd; lascivious.
2. of, pertaining to, or characteristic of the libido.


Libidinosus is a serie of 100 drawings with the nose view as the main sense. No eyes, no mouth and no ears. It's the basic for an instinctive survival. It are in one way caricatures, but besides the funny look of some creatures it's a reference to the important of the smell.

Imagine a world where everyone has only a big nose. No eyes, no ears, no mouth, but only a nose that has potential to do the stuff we need the most. You can see some of the first drawings here on the website.
