Vincent Bal uses a combination of doodling and shadows from every day objects, to create quirky illustrations:

I thought that it would be a fun experience to experiment with this method of using shadows from every day objects.
Out of all the objects used, I enjoyed working with glass pieces the most. I love the variety of detail in the reflections, created by different pieces.
I explored the different shadows created by a variety of objects. Instead of focusing on an exact theme, I drew inspiration from the shadows created by the objects. Therefore, I ended up with a lot of random doodles.
I think it could be interesting experimenting with objects with more geometric shapes in the future. After experimenting with the process of combining shadows and doodles, I have started looking at objects in a different way.
