In thinking about the way that I work I have begun to see, what I think, is a good pattern. I spend time in the studio thinking and developing projects, not so much making them, but planning them out. I like to get three or four on the drawing board, so I can bounce between them, but also so if one does not work out, I have other things to do. I’ve always a pile of projects planed out; like a roadmap, it lets me know that I always have things to do.
After getting a plan, I then go into production. Of course during this period much of the project is fleshed out and developed, but the foundation is there. It is exciting, but difficult. I enjoy the freedom of thinking about stuff, but when you actually have to start doing it, spending the money, making the work, engaging with people, it can get a bit daunting.
