I found the idea of temporary drawings fascinating. From the beginning of my creative career, most of my pictures I created had some purpose. I either used them in greeting cards, graphic designs or sold them as stock images. Every time I would sit to draw it was to get the images I need for my projects quickly. This exercise of making fleeting marks was a reset on my attitude toward drawing. I understood that I should not feel precious or careful about my work at all times. This would lead to more freedom and exploration.
Below are some of my temporary drawings created using black tea leaves on a ceramic plate.
