Honestly, I’m not really sure what I was trying to convey when I started this piece.

But as i grew more and more frustrated with trying to make something beautiful, I realized that something else started to form.  I removed the excess design, and set aside illustrator for a bit, intending to come back to it later, and hopefully resume in the direction that I was starting to feel it developing.

And then I loaded it up, and realized… It’s exactly how it needs to be.

So – out of frustration, comes something that I like, it only took me stepping away for a bit, and letting it mature.
