Out of the blue, suddenly struck by a fresh idea projected so vividly in my mind, if executed as imagined it could captivate an audience. To have a chance at executing this thought, it must be documented. Making it to the nearest device to record this idea, I find a pen and paper. Jotting down major details, typefaces, colors, personality, and then the fine details are captured that set it apart. The fluent flow of ideas, created in seconds is caught and saved as detailed as possible. These visual notes are the key to my success.

When I create, my main goal is to illustrate and execute the idea in my head first before putting it down on paper. My work starts off frantic and fast quickly getting information to the paper, finding lines and definition in sketches. After this is a calm of execution and a meticulous finalization of the sketch to how it was imagined. After comes revisions and more revisions to reach the final product. This final product produced was the original idea imagined that has traveled through these processes to reach this point.
