Goal: To create one work of art each day for 365 consecutive days
You may or may not remember this, but last week I determined Fridays were destined to become “Coaster Fridays.” Well, I was wrong. Instead of designing a resting spot for a beer, I spent yesterday finishing up this big daddy of a drawing.
The design stemmed from my recent thoughts on order and organization – two things I struggle with and don’t really love. What I do love is being outside to enjoy nature, and so I began comparing the two. I recognized that the reason I like getting outdoors, beyond blowing the stink off of me, is that it seems open and free and somewhat random. But as I thought about it more carefully, I realized that so much in nature is actually pretty structured too. I decided I would create something to reflect the organization and patterns in the natural world.
The resulting piece is a juxtaposition of precise patterning created from less precise, “Micah-like” designs that give the work character beyond its structure.
