This morning I was at a loss for an idea, so I turned to yesterday’s work as a jumping off point. Yesterday, I had used a piece of paper as a blotter for the firefly drawing. I thought the accidental marks on the paper might help generate an idea.
I started thinking about making something out of nothing, and I wrote those words in a random curve. This led to the idea of the gears turning, so I placed gears randomly in the drawing until I had filled the whole page. Within a half hour, I had created this post from basically nothing.
