When creating my work, I begin with an idea and some notes from what I envision the piece will look like and feeling I am trying to convey. Usually by this point, I know if the piece will be a digital painting or photo manipulation. I begin sketching out the idea and build upon it, making more notes along the way. After the sketch is completed, I begin searching the images and objects on hand in my archives. If there is a figure in the piece, will I use a model, or will I use the drawing that I have sketched out. If I cannot find exactly what I am looking for in my personal archives, I will begin photographing everything that I may need for the piece, and add them into my archives. Once I am satisfied, it is time for piecing everything together like a puzzle on the computer to complete the piece.
