Fall Convocation Piece-Review

Convocation Fall Piece

This piece resulted from a speech about a first hand experience during 9/11. I feel a great sense of peace and balance through this piece, which reflects some themes from the presenter. Although very organic, geometry keeps its form in order. Often times, I look at old work and just feel thatĀ somethingĀ is missing. I may revisit this print sometime in the future an repost and update.

To help with this idea of how you know something is missing, I’ll explain my feeling more in depth. Upon review of this composition, I feel that it is significantly heavy in the top left portion, I wonder if I should have done more with the open shapes on the mid left or the right half, and it just seems as if there is a spark missing. Maybe one element should be added. I am not sure.

Convocation Piece-Fall 1

This piece is a part of a series of “Doodles” which I use to play with movement, weight, and patterns. I usually will draw one once a month, as a warm up technique. I use a black sharpie and a blank piece of computer paper and allow these shapes to take form. This is a good technique for the imagination and to get creative flow. Additionally, each piece in this “Doodle” series is inspired by a speech or public conversation.
