Process

Great art has no instruction manual.

Creativity is the opposite of throwing a dart  to hit a target.

 

Instead, I stumble around like a child and experiment with multiple ideas. The fear of making mistakes fades away, and I free myself from the expectation of pleasing others.

 

What emerges are novel creations that exist nowhere outside

of the mind.

Constructing magical worlds involves finding discovery in ordinary things. 

 

Sometimes ideas take years to develop because the linework is visionary and unattempted.

​Instead of
"normal" designs, these distinctive creations get people talking in our attention-scarce culture

 Below are my roughest sketches, to show how incredible ideas can start with simple marks.

These sketches are a fraction of what exists in my imagination. A lifetime of drawing is not enough time to extract the thousands of ideas.

Now, here is art made by my grandma. So she may have been drawing the same thing for over 25 years, but I give her applause!
