Exploratory Swim Day #1: Loosening up

From text to abstraction

Start by... making art!

Started with the quotes that inspired me. Put them in Photoshop. Playing with different styles.

Ended up looking at Solange's book.

Chat w/Vanessa. Self-compassion. Prompts.

20 rapid-fire 30-second sketches. Explain the future to an alien who doesn't use written language. Newsprint, cheap. Hard pastel, new medium for me. Draw from my gut. Get out of my thinking mind. Really powerful.
