Analog Shapes

This weekend the class began the exploration of marks as they relate to the thumbnails and the first line of our chosen haiku. After deciding what I considered to be my strongest thumbnail sketches (tears, condensation and regenerate) from the first line (Dewdrops, Let Me Cleanse...), I reviewed the 30+ pages of marks I had generated with the tools relating to the haiku and chose those that echoed my abstract or symbolic sketches. This led to the creation of 5 different iterations of these through the manipulation of my marks (total 15). However, I scanned my marks and manipulated them digitally while the assignment (which I found out today in class) requires cutting, pasting and combination by hand. This week, I will be making actual "analog shapes" as well as iterating my first line shapes further. After the class critique, I took the most successful mark and did 3 more pages of iterations of this mark (shown below).
