I have been recently trying to consolidate my belongings. I want to have less and have it organized. It has been a 4-year process thus far, but I am finally making some progress (even though I never ever thought it would take over 4-years!)
Anyway, because of my "digging deep" into forgotten realms of Paul, I am now finding drawings (here and there) that were misplaced by my disorganization syndrome.
This drawing is one of those lost works that I am speaking of.
It comes from a much bigger piece. I decided to cut this section out because I thought it was out of place in regards to the rest of the work.
Back in my -Undergrad and Grad- days I would deconstruct and reconstruct my drawings by cutting them up and taping them back together (in different formations / sometimes with different drawings / etc). I did this for many reasons that I will not get into now. But one the main reasons for this -deconstruct/reconstruct- was to keep my art/drawings from ending.
I do not start a drawing to finish it. Instead, I start a drawing to never finish it. Both the "finish" and the "never finish" are difficult to achieve, and one is not better than the other. Currently, I am just focused on learning how to keep a drawing from finishing.
The materials used in this drawing: Rapidograph (.20 Technical pen), Watercolor, Sharpies, Arches watercolor paper.
Although I do not think it is my greatest drawing ever, I do like how it looks like a "card" of some sort. I remember being inspired by this drawing into thinking about creating my own personal set of "Cards of Paul", Or a faux tarot deck or "Art poker cards", or something like that.
I find the upper-right hand corner of this drawing perfect some kind of element that would help push this "card" idea. So you see, this drawing has really only just begun!
