  1. A fascinating process to watch and a wonderful outcome, Zack. I loved it how incongruous at first the circle of the first lens is against the backdrop of squiggles. (God, I hope it’s not offensive to you that I call them squiggles!) And how the face already becomes apparent; with that first monocle and then the first curvatures of the mouth, how Huxley’s right ear comes into focus and we already have a clear sense of what we are looking at.

    Thank you for letting is spy over your shoulder!

    1. You’re right. This is one of those examples of how sometimes things have to look a little funny before they look good. Watching the awkwardness resolve itself is really satisfying for me. (Oh, and we could call a squiggle an “erratic line” but then it’s just a squiggle with a fancy name.) Thanks for the feedback!

  2. It sure does look to be calming for you, and yet I can’t help but think that there was more control in your movements. Maybe I’m think of the word “meditativ”e wrong?
