I tried to focus on coding, but I felt a strong need to create physical art.
Chase was playing a playlist with these songs on it. I Shazam’d the songs as I drew. I vibed to each song in totality.
The pencil began by commenting on the development of Apple as a corporation. Corporate governance is evolving faster than our judicial governance. That’s the one we should really be watching.
Then, the pencil moved left and created a burst. While physically drawing that burst, I was in a meditative state – I lost my self in what I was doing. The plan itself (to create a burst) was intentional, but once I had begun the action of creating the burst and set my intention as such, I let the pencil do the work.
On the left side of the burst, you can see the simple sketch of a small gift. This is when the idea for the drawing developed a level deeper. I decided in that moment to make the drawing into a gift, and from then on, the pencil line refers to this idea.
In the last piece of the line, I reference that I was mostly letting the pencil do all of the work by itself. It moves like a creature around the page, leaving a semi-permanent trail for anyone to see and trace with their senses. And now I’ve digitized it.
