Yesterday, I learned that being spontaneous doesn’t require rushing through a drawing or a piece of writing. Speeding up the process through scribbling or stream of consciousness writing can be a way to get started, but it doesn’t mean you can’t slow the process down for the sake of taking a little more control.
The speed limit I had set for my professional work is extremely slow, and it seemed to be getting slower and slower every week, because it is becoming more and more detailed. This blog is a way of breaking away from that trend and opening up my imagination to new possibilities and techniques.
I’m finding that I am in control of the speed at which I work. The process can be sped up or slowed down at any point. I believe the trick is in being conscious of it and deliberately choosing a speed that feels comfortable at every moment.
