Part of my practice over the past ten years has involved looking back at my own work for clues about whether I'm on my own right track. I'm always grateful to the glimpses of clarity from my younger self, so today I unearthed old sketchbooks in the hopes of something lighting me up. This spread from nearly three years ago is exactly what I needed.

Don't worry about perfect use of materials. Do allow for experimentation and FAILURE.

Don't use things that don't attract you. Do use things that make you uncomfortable.

Don't be afraid to start with something that has been done. Do make reasonable goals.
