Solving problems generally demands a compression of ideas. An abstraction of what you mean to explore, time spent trimming away fat to arrive at the central gem of an idea. This process reveals a simple truth: often the best solutions come from places of simple intuition and gut feeling. This weekend workshop with Allan Yu is a gauntlet of timed five-to-ten minute image making for over five hours straight, two days in a row. The method compels inspiration from every fiber of being. This is a space where design rules are meant to be both tested and broken. Through this workshop, I rediscovered a forgotten love for raw aesthetic and chasing after happy accidents. The following posters are some of my favorites from a massive collection that convey an abstract sense of what my visual instinct looks like.
