Ordinary Objects Transformed into Illustrations by Ash Oat

Ash Oat is a designer and an illustrator who uses everyday objects like chopsticks, coffee cup sleeve, paper clips, headphones etc. to create clever imagery. The New York based artist incorporates the ordinary things for his ongoing series Things + Ink and transforms them into an owl, a ballet dancer, a pianist, a queen or an elephant. He uses software like Adobe Illustrator, the Adobe Draw app, and the Adobe Sketch app to draw. 

These are some of his work that he conceptualized and drew quickly during his lunch hours. His work is simple yet clever. He shared a quote on his website by Paul Rand "Simplicity is not the goal. It is the by-product of a good idea and modest expectations."
