I started doodling a ladder—then added some arms. I was playing with the J and the letter P as mirror object along the ladder. This was my playing with the first elementary blocks. I did not want to complicate the design, I wanted to keep it as bare bones as possible.
It is not as finessed as I would like, however, at this stage one can warp the shape and have fun with it. The undulating curve of a wave is an interesting shape and can be played with in photoshop and illustrator for hours on end.
I started with a simple ladder with arms and ended with a simple dragon. Hmmmm. Art reflects life…life reflects art?
I will let you know if I start sprouting dragon scales.
