Discoveries don't need to be discovered. They simply need to be recognised as what they are.
... When I'm working on a new project, I try to use as many previously learned skill as I can. In other words I try to stretch the boundaries a bit more and look at the project from as many different practical points of view as possible. I don't start project from the beginning. A project idea can come from anywhere. Something I read, heard, experienced or felt. I then pull threads from it and connect it to techniques, stories visions and even to other creative field like music and film. I think the 'Portraits' project is a good example of that. From looking at a series of people considered icons, a whole project started taking shape. Then after testing the idea and getting, I decided to make it a stand alone project, mixing sketches, programming, illustrations and even sound.
