Sharing my lockkdown lessons
To pass this time of isloation I decided to explore starting points for future work. The first part was around value and design. I followed an online workshop which suggested using random charcoal marks, scribbles, erasures before selecting areas, to edit by adding and subtracting until I was happy.
