Gerd Antz: Pictograms

I got this issue of Monograph through with Creative Review magazine, it’s all about the pictogram work or Gerd Antz. I love the religious symbols and poses on the last image, and the uniformity that links all the images together. I like seeing image number too showing how the block is cut and how it prints out, and the original drawing. You can see how it’s al measured and disciplined to unify all the components of the pictogram. I chose to show the hunter and the rabbit, because I liked how the sequence of the two images changes the meaning. If the rabbit was just there then there would be no urgency and it would have a different meaning. It shows how you can utilise Antz’s simple imagery.¬†
