Messy Bun Studies

I remember coming across these drawings on tumblr last year and not for the life of me being able to find the right source and then yesterday the lovely Jennifer posted them to her pinterest with the correct source in tow and I was finally able to find out a little more about the exquisitely executed messy hair.

The images were drawn by  Ian Thomas, a freelance illustrator who studied Graphic Design in North Carolina. Here's what he has to say about his messy bun studies:

In the context of lecture classes, there's only so much one can draw from life. The subject I thought most interesting, and found had the greatest variety, was my classmates' messy hair buns. This is a series of ink illustrations inspired by the drawings originally done in the margins of notes, like so much of my work.

I hope all the other South Africans out there are enjoying their day off and making the most of the long weekend.
