table top works

When the scale is table top, the whole piece is likely lighter, so the paper has more of a chance to do some load-bearing work for the piece, contributing more than color, form and texture. The smaller scale also lets us work quickly. We use the simple challenge of making a couple of things stand up together in an unexpected way to work our way towards something that also looks arresting. Function and form take turns leading.
Sizes are approximate.
Often we get enamored with the components of a sketch and start moving them around to see how the variations can maintain a similar power and yet be in very different positions. It's like having several snapshots of a person in the same clothes going about their day rather than just one shot posed at quitting time.
