the quest for focus again

When I design, my mind is constantly flipping and changing every shape and concept I think of. Its a habit you've got to flex. And just like muscle confusion you've gotta hit it all types of ways in-order to get results. You have to do the same with purpose. Product designers do it everyday. Unfortunately sometimes i lose that habit and i have to find it through fine art or illustration. So Im on my quest for my next design concept. I have to be super focused. I'll be using this week to warm up my left hand and get it going. Wish me luck!

Paper Proper

Lately ive noticed paper has been the source for allot of inspiration. Paper fashion has been around since the 60s and its easy to see why. Wether used as material or used to inspire everyday wear paper is a great way to freshen up your look. Pleats, origami folds and cut outs wouldn't be gracing your lovely figure if designers didn't look into paper for ideas.
