The rising tide lifts all boats...

Until the weekend I had never heard the expression “The rising tide lifts all boats”

Since then I’ve heard it 3 times.

I’m not sure what the universe it trying to tell me but it immediately reminded me of the wonderful work of illustrator Aykut Aydogdu.

I know very little about him , other than the information from his site. All I know is that I find his work captivating.

He was born in 1986, Ankara - Turkey, where he started studying Fine Arts at high school and graduated from Faculty of Fine Arts - Graphic Design. He has various works on commercial illustrations, magazine covers, movie posters. His surreal figurative works are mainly concentrated on the dilemmas of the daily life.

Much of his work seems inspired by water, birds, roses, galaxies. Some of my favourites too.

Although I have to say the close up mouths freak me out more than a little…
