It’s a typical Thursday morning, and I’m in my kitchen sitting down to eat breakfast. Nothing special, just a bagel. However, what is special about this breakfast, is that I have both time and silence—two things that are extremely delicious and fulfilling in their own ways. I find myself spending this quiet time thinking about an upcoming project. Accompanying my plate and bagel are a pen and sketchbook. I start sketching, thinking, and re-sketching, and I quickly start laying out what will be the foundation of a new project I’m working on will look like. Ideas are flowing, and bagels are disappearing.
