Often I take a photograph knowing it is "unfinished;" that I must print and then alter the surface of the photograph via drawing, painting, and/or the application of ridiculous craft materials (glitter, felt, googly eyes) to fully and accurately depict what I need to convey. This technique (violating the "sacred" surface of the photograph) and my materials of choice (available at any craft store!) combine to bring me great joy in thoroughly expressing whatever magical absurdity I envisioned when photographing my typically mundane subject. Magic is real. Tadaaaaa.
