I try and show other worlds you may recognise
My day is like a drawing in my sketch book, I don't know what is going to come out, so I draw a line, it doesn't matter what that looks like and then I add to it. After a few strokes of the pen I can see what the sketch could become. Now I am in the grove and things are starting to flow. The rest is just fun, building on the very first pen strike that hits the pad.
