Sketches and doodles
I suppose I’ve arrived at that place many graduated (or simply ex-) students reach once they’re no longer in school: I’m finding it difficult to finish pieces without having that external push. I have several ongoing projects that just aren’t coming together, and others that require resources I don’t have. It’s discouraging sometimes, to think of everything I haven’t done.1 However, I am constantly photographing stuff 2, and sometimes I turn an image of an item into something more interesting and less prosaic.
I really like these images and their spontaneous creation. They’re like a painter’s sketches or an illustrator’s doodles. They remind me that I can still experiment with image making without dragging out chemicals or doing a lot of hand work. They are quick and remind me that creativity and inspiration are everywhere in everyone.
I have more — I’ve been sharing them on my Tumblr, perhaps it is time make a home for them here.
