At the beginning of the year I decided to make sure I set time aside to create art that was experimental, explorative and for no eventual purpose. It's nice to make work that isn't for anything else; there is no pressure for it to be any good. And this can be very freeing when you are constantly creating for other people. I knew that I need to create to work through or gain ideas. I bought a new sketchbook and every few weeks I set aside time to fill it with work with no preconceptions on how it will turn out, with work that might not necessarily fit my style. I can try out different materials, use it to work through thoughts and concepts, and be a bit mindless and free.
Here are some select pages from January and Febuary.
