A friend gave me this paper during a visit in Miami. Cutting it with the edge of a pocket knife and handing it over, I took it eagerly as I promised to keep its origin apart of the story. Not thinking too much about what I was creating the piece meandered and swelled.
A couple years later a head on its shoulders emerged. Mirroring a mindful approach to how I created - careful not rip the paper with quick ink strokes.
Holding the paper up revealed tiny holes. Mindful of every ink dot as the paper is so thin, I realize the brain tree was mirroring my own introspection..
