I've decided that for a while my blog will be about "process" -- mine or others' that inspire me. My own process can often be pretty crazy - with many different ideas. I'd wanted to do a sledding image for a while, but just couldn't get it to work. I'd wanted to do a sleeping woman as well, but also couldn't get that to feel right (after all, do you know a lot of woman who sleep a lot?). Since it was January, I thought I could draw four faces with each having a different New Year's resolution around them...but I scrapped that idea quickly (too many reminders of broken promises to ourselves!). The image I ended up with felt perfect and ended up being the homepage illustration for my new site. Process can be extremely uncomfortable but oh-so-rewarding when a good solution is reached!
