In my art, I am all about process. I love to sit and letter and can get absorbed in that. When I am done lettering, it's easy to sit back and say, well, that is finished. A few years ago I began to cut up some "failed" calligraphy pieces, and it was a wonderfully liberating experience. All of a sudden, the pieces weren't precious, and the quality of the lettering didn't matter. Neither did legibility. There is a lot of freedom when the pressure to be perfect is taken away.
So, here are some pages with my own lettering torn or cut up.
