I have been spending time with some artist friends this week. One let me photograph her sketchbook. She fingerprinted herself and filled pages with it. We talked about the creative process, and how an artist needs to continue exploring an idea and testing it until it breaks. Only then does the idea transform into what can become the work. I consider myself a writer, though I have done more as an editor; I like being a photographer but am purely an amateur. Artists who create something from nothing are amazing people!
