Lately I have been working in a whirl wind, trying out new ideas and techniques as they pop into my head. Sometimes I start with a concept or intent but when I begin making marks, it often goes right out the window. I decided to take time to process what I have done lately, let it sink in and filter out what I have learned that was applicable to future work.
In this piece I have tried to distill my intent, sharpen my focus and simplify my execution. I studied my past work and asked myself, "What do I like, what feels like me?" Determining that, I discard everything else! It is a gradual process, I admit but I feel that I am pointed in the right direction.
