WHAT I LEARNED

I created this calendar around the same time I was working on the Deconstructed Rice Bowls, and once again greatly enjoyed incorporating analog methods into my process. This project, however, specifically showed me how rewarding it is to pair analog-sourced content with digital editing. The analog aspect brings joy and personality into the work, while the digital aspect allows for a high level refinement not otherwise achievable.
