I have began a new collection of hair. I know! Yuck! Ironically my own repulsion of hair is what still continues to spur me on into this investigation - fascination even - of human hair. I am not sure where it will lead me, but I am following the niggling thoughts and ideas that continue to guide me deeper. I am collecting my own hair again and will continue to do this whenever I have a shower or brush my hair. When I find this collection visually interesting or even aesthetically pleasing, I will photograph the natural placement of the hair (as seen in the images on this post).
We'll see where it goes...

I am currently trying to find time to finish an ink drawing. I feel very inspired again and really want to make the most of this inspirational energy.
