I try to always keep a sketchbook a place were at least once a weekI can let myself go & explore something just for me. I don’t worry if it is sale-able, if it’s too messy, is the color a bit sad, is the subject strange? you get the idea. Funny enough it’s been the place were many of my favorite prints have come from. Of course I clean them up, maybe brighten the color but this is were many of my ideas are born. I love to tape things down instead of glue if I’m collaging- I think it’s part laziness & also I like the transparency of the tape over bits of the image- it adds another element to me, a touch of warmth or maybe it is just tape.
