Primitive Drawing

Throughout this project i have tried to draw influence from a number of different sources, Including Aboriginal art and primitive and naive drawing, a lot of my sketchbook work has involved mark making and an attempt to absorb the styles from a number of different cultures to create something different of my own. The reason why i think that primitive drawing works in application to this text in particular is that Jean-Baptiste is the only one of his kind, and an other to the rest of society, and at times could be considered savage. The Primitive also links in well with the superstitiousness of the 18th century and the exoticism associated with perfumery.
