The past six / seven months I have been concentrating on simplifying my creative process. Ink, graphite, a swipe of watercolor has been the recipe for my recent pages. I also find myself battling between illustrative and a more realistic approach. It's become frustrating but that's the point where you push harder. Make ugly and sit in the ugly for a while and still continue to create.
Not an easy road but a deeply satisfying in the end.
