Yearning to fly...
Concept: Unable to sleep due to my horrendous cough, I laid there in bed, thinking of this weeks Illustration Friday word, "soar". I immediately thought, "Boy, if I were an ostrich, it would drive me nuts that I couldn't fly." So, I've given an ostrich a chance to soar.
Though, I don't think this one will have much time to enjoy it...

The area of your brain that gives you shitty ideas...
Concept: I was doing mind-numbingly boring work today, so as I concentrated on everything but what I was doing, I began to imagine a place where bad ideas come from. I thought to myself, "Well, I've had plenty of shitty ideas, so there has to be a place in the brain where they emanate from."
So I did a little math, carried the 2, and came up with "Fecal Matter".

I think a big problem with my work is that I don't tell a story with my images. There has to be a narrative. I've fallen into the trap of just combining objects to make a "creative" image.
I'm going to start telling stories with my images (hopefully), and I think that will make my work richer. Thanks for listening to me complain!
ps...of course, I don't want to concentrate TOO hard on telling a story. I also get caught up in "thinking" too much, and end up not producing anything. I spin a web, then get caught in it....
