Illustration Friday-- Open

Buy this print on Cafepress

I believe the process of creating opens doors to other worlds inside us, regardless of our medium of expression.

I usually have dim images of what might be on the other side of a particular door as I begin work-- but then when I'm halfway through, I find myself somewhere completely unexpected.

The logical part of me wonders how it's possible to be surprised by something that I set out so deliberately to create-- shouldn't I know all the little back streets and cafes by heart before I begin?

But I don't. Ever.
One of the chief reasons I write stories is to find out how they end-- to learn all the little wrinkles and switchbacks that I don't know about when I imagine them first.

How about you?
