Works in progress

I’ve spent a lot of time today trying to finish some artwork for my documentary. I’ve been trying to us a mix of different textures when choosing paper and I think the end result looks nice at the moment. The process is very time consuming, and I think I’m going to need to factor in more time per animated sequence. 

I’ve been reading about the slow movement recently and see parallels in my chosen materials and methods at the moment. The time needed to complete the pieces I’m working on at the moment means that the results emerge slowly, and I have to have a bit of patience with the process. Rushing this kind of work may lead to quicker results, but the are frequently less successful than the ones I develop slowly, with plenty of thinking time built into the process.
