This piece was a challenge since I’m not really used to working on abstract and geometric pieces. It’s interesting how abstract red blood cells look, and I initially tried to incorporate some texture but realized that it was taking away from what red blood cells are known for – having a smooth surface. This was another collage I worked on while live streaming my process, and I’ve really enjoyed the small community I’ve found on TikTok.
Overall, I really like how this new anatomy series has energized me. I’m getting more excited about my art and my process by working on these pieces. I think previously I wasn’t challenging myself enough or really focusing my craft on any one subject. I had a tendency of tackling a subject here and there. I think I need to work on more of these cohesive bodies of work in the future.
