Chronology:
Bright colours, simple compositions
Created new, simple painting versions of those
Prepared many yellow backgrounds on board
So then that base of drawings of thirty possibilities
Making with a marker clean, line-heavy design version of them
Which is, um, which came from looking at the iphoto gallery of the images I had done
And then the next thing is the yellows on board
Paint them together to create a single drawing connected by several of the large images
Oh. The next thing was using some of the failed versions of the larger paper
That was what happened for a really long time
Introducing sanding into the process to create a smooth city wall polish
Large-format paper using the same materials
Twenty made
Medium-format paper bringing in gouache and acrylic
Coloured ink is introduced
Fifty are left
Four generations of drawings are whittled down and the best are kept
Make more
Refine them into groups
Become generations of drawings
Hundreds of drawings
Ink drawings of faces, whatever comes to mind
Yellow printer paper and india ink
