The process always begins with lines...typically some simple blue lines sketched onto a page as my mind wanders to whereand what is their final destination. This project for a professional athlete seemed perfect to explorethe process. The concept of escaping the confines of the expected frame - living outside the lines - coloring your own path. This speaks to most of my creative work - sketch where it starts, more sketches to discover where it could go, and play there to see what happens...the results always reminds me that the process is always as important as the product.
This is where it typically begins...sketch time. I grab my sketchbook, it's usually late and I'm multi-tasking by drawing, watching a sporting event or a TV show and on those undisciplined nights occasionally reaching for a snack (my enemy is dark chocolate). It's my favorite time of the day...just the creative process - no mistakes, no needto erase or start over...if the mind wanders I follow along excited to see where the pencil will take me. I hope to use this platform to share those moments. Maybe at times to express a thought found along the trail or showcase what the end of the trail became, for better or worse. Stop in again soon!
