Now that I'm fairly satisfied with this piece, I'm going to scrub it away, using erasers and sandpaper to attenuate the existing marks and fields. The history left on the paper will be a bare-bones outline of my decision making, flattened in time. From here I will begin again thinking about content and form, building on the history and re-composing.
I will do this over and over. The drawings on my flickr page are all done in this manner, both the thesis drawings photoset and the 2d work photoset.
