The theme for WEEK 2 is: {Surface Design & Textiles}

For today's project, I couldn't work as small as I initially set out to do! (That's a good thing, considering my goal to work on a bigger scale, this year.) I rarely create artwork using this triptych style, so, I bit the bullet- so to speak- and dove right in!
Each panel has a story of its own but it also unifies with the other two pieces. (I like to think of it as a close-knit family.)

I want this to be a "work in progress" because it gives me time to slow down and, kind of, walk you through my creation process.

I will have the finished version ready to show you, tomorrow.

Here's what the sides look like...graffiti styled lettering!

As always, if you have questions regarding my creative process, please don't hesitate to ask! I don't mind at all ;-).

Well, that's it until tomorrow! See you off to carve some unique stamps...
