The Process

This project has become a three-pronged process:
I begin by reading the chapter closely, listening to rhythms, repeated words, watching for imagery. I scribble notes throughout, waiting for an image to form in my mind.
I then draw the image, trying to encapsulate the feel-idea of the chapter
The process of drawing itself engenders new thoughts, and I jot down any words that come to mind, merging them with the image

If I feel these new ideas spill beyond the bounds of the drawing, I develop them on a new page into a prose-poem
