I mean your work. I don't know you. Don't get me wrong. But then again, awesome work is sometimes the reflection of an awesome person. Who knows???

Do you ever scribble before you know fully what you plan to write? I was on the phone scribbling on a small notepad and I ended up not liking what I wrote! LOL. I can't seem to decide whether I'm a planner or not. Well, I FEEL like a planner, but my best stuff has always come from spur of the moment... hm!

aimee said...

talk about uncontained chaos...the two year old woke up at 6:00 this morning, just terrible... mad dash downtown for coffee sorted things out a bit so i can at least type...

jessica - i usually carry around a little throwaway notebook to capture thoughts when they come to me but i don't have the time to doodle - which is most of the time... but for illustration friday i just give myself a minute or two to come up w/the idea - the time pressure is part of the fun.

and go check out thereza's chaos in the head, i had forgotten about this fabby scribble... she does a much better job than i do of reigning in the chaos and making something out of it...

Ces said...

Oh Aimee, what a thrill it is to come here and be met by several pieces I have not seen recently. I just love your beautiful mind and that agile right hand of yours, although I must say, the left isn't bad either.
