The art of Ping Pong, FiveFootSix

PING PONG!! I undertook a competition for the company Five Foot Six in which I had to create a cover and back design to go on a ping pong paddle as part of the annual charity fun raiser. I could design anything I wanted to and so I began initial sketches with drawing fluid forms on the paddle templates we were given. I then had the idea of using the paddle as a theatrical prop around the face where the first idea was to have  two portraits in different expressions on each side. I then developed this idea into simply focusing on a set of lips and began sketching and souring imagery of female lips specifically as I found them visually appealing.
