So much of my roadblocks creatively come down to problem solving. It's one reason I like to work on/in multiple projects/mediums at the same time.
I've put in some time on the college collage artwork now. I realize the dilemmas I'm having are related to the rushed initial base work that was due to working within the time frame of the class (1 3/4 hours). Now I'm battling to make a decent looking piece with an indecent starting point. Sigh. I know we're being judged on design rather than technique, but I find poor technique very distracting.
