My work changes all the time, very often is obvious and anybody can see it but sometimes is only me who knows about the changes.. I believe that habit is not healthy for my creativity. When I sold a work, if I keep doing the same kind of work again and again I am slowly killing my creative evolution. I need to explore new territories, find new challenges, then I feel alive.
