I usually work digitally. With software, you can make all drawings pixel perfect – but that is not my goal. Even when working digital, I try to leave room for ‘happy mistakes’ and coincidence.
‘Happy mistakes’ and coincidence play a different – and larger – role in analog work. I knew that already, but it’s fun to experience this again. Plus, it’s just cool to be able to physically hold your work in your hands. Whether that is a painting on paper or a sketchbook with (often half-finished) drawings.
After all, we’re 3D-beings, and it’s just something else to experience your own work in 3D. With all your senses. Well, several of them at least.
(I’m not in the habit of licking my sketchbooks)
