Today I started gathering artifacts to use in the Journals series. Whenever I start collecting visual artifacts, the narrative of the pieces starts to evolve quickly. I have always started any visual art project with an underlying story, even though that isn’t a necessary function of the design. It is simply my way of working. My training is that of an illustrator and even with an abstract piece, I have a back-story or, at the very least, a symbolism. I guess I will never be a minimalist.
Paul Simon said, “Maybe I think too much.” Left brain, right brain, it is my entire monkey mind, chattering away. Perhaps this year, I should take meditation more seriously. I‘ll think about it.
