while working on the new series of chapbooks, i've also been carving a few individual images. i guess lately i've been kind of interested in the idea of black and white abstraction and images of nature. i've always been enthralled with fractals and op art, and i want to explore that idea through images of the world, as opposed to just straight abstraction. i want to create something that is at the same time abstract and image. i've got some work to do on this idea, judging from these initial steps, but i think this idea will play out as a sketchbook of practice prints in the next chapbook. here are my first few thoughts.

there's still a lot of exploration on this idea, but i've been out exploring and taking photos to play around with, and hopefully this can help me move away from the literalism of imagery and into the abstraction of idea.
