We had a bunch of different directions when working on it. Still really like this WIP but we ended up taking it in a different direction. Can't win em all :)


A collab I've been working on with my friend Josine Kamstra. ( )

We wanted to create a magical piece that had a sense of wonder and childlike imagination. We wanted to play with scale and atmosphere and this is what came out of it. This is one of those pieces that I just spend a while on noodling and changing it however much I feel like it.
