i spent the weekend working on a piece for a hand-made book to be published this fall. nothing makes your creative process seem more chaotic and random than trying to do a pictorial, step-by-step walk-through as you create a new piece with a two day notice. i am so messy when i work and had to stop between each shot to clean away my mugs and tea bags and scraps.
at the beginning i rarely know where i'm going to end up and this was no different. i completely changed course twice and had to go back and retake a few early pictures to make it a smooth process and to keep from having to add in a small note, " *at this point i changed my mind and scraped the entire bottom half. disregard previous steps 2 through 4. skip to step 7c."
