amidst frustration

creating this piece was a very experimental experience. It started out with just the character and was supposed to be an ode to "blonde". I didn’t like any direction it took on from there

I was so hung up on that initial idea and building some beautiful environment around the character. I really wanted to realize that concept but nothing seemed to work out - I felt boxed in. So I decided to put just that frustration into the artwork.. a big dark box.

Instead of forcing that initial concept I took a step back and just let my current mood and emotions flow into the artwork. It was a really interesting learning experience.
