Adventures two dimensions

This unfinished epic drawing still sort of blows my mind (another late 2016). I undertook a very daunting 9 x 12 inch blank page and somehow just kept going with it for hours, and maybe days? I don’t quite remember. It was incredibly satisfying, but the more I added, the more scared I got that my next idea would suck, so eventually I had to quit while I was ahead. Still, I love this piece because in it I can see a lot of potential, the fact that my brain is indeed filled with ideas without end. And yes, some of them will suck.

While I do love this sprawling style, I’m going to focus on smaller pieces with a more coherent pattern for now, just for the sake of getting into a sustainable and productive rhythm and not burn myself out.
