Kamille, 2016, In Progress, Insights

You’ve probably by now seen a lot of my in progress shots and how the works are created. I wanted to go a little more in depth and talk about some of the technical aspects of creating a work such as this one. Here’s the completed work, for reference of course: There were a few

I recently had the pleasure of conducting an interview with Section 8 Magazine. They posed some very interesting, thought provoking questions.
