The concept behind my illustration deals with the process of creation; specifically, the imaginative process involved in bringing forth a work of art. All one has at the beginning is a fairly vague and intangible idea that has issued forth from the jumble of images and phrases that fill the imagination. Then one begins assembling the incoherent and intangible "ideas" into intelligible form through sketching and the initial stages of painting, drawing, sculpting, etc. The end result is then both the finished piece in and of itself, as well as all that had happened in order for it to become that finished illustration.
