When I sat down to design, I was stuck. So just like with the Devin collection, I wrote. Here is the excerpt from my art journal. It's crazy because I have multiple epiphanies writing this. The entry abruptly stops because I start drawing like a mad woman!
i have feelings of child-like happiness
so not me
so i'm rejecting it
i'm thinking too hard
simple joyful vibrations
are higher than where i sit
so i struggle to let go
i struggle to find something tangible for what i see
and i struggle to feel what i see
color is what i see
I'm not kidding when I say this one was all UNICORNS, RAINBOWS, and YAY!s for me.
YAY! would not get out of my head.
I kept wondering HOOOOOOOW
am I going to make art from this inspiration.
There wasn't a shape, concept, or type of line in mind. Just YAY!....
After I wrote my thoughts out I saw major clues!
The level of DIGGING DEEP this collection took me was no joke.
I moved restaurants THREE TIMES in one afternoon.
I sat at the museum garden.
I will NOT launch something I am not head-over-heels about so I wondered what in the world was I going to do.
My deadline passed. I was WEEKS late on this one. Because it wasn't going to come to me on MY timing.
I actually called this the most difficult collection to dig into to date in my video design diary.

there was one sculpture I saved the image of. It was so good I thought it was it's own collection. NO! It was the ANCHOR of this one! Then in SEVEN MINUTES I drew the rest of the collection and ran to the office to show them! Shouting from the rooftops this will be an SB iconic group FOREVER!
