Back To Square One

Although I always cary a pen and notebook(s) - my studio workflow is pretty much 100% digital - and so is this project.

I started by going through idiom lists online and compiled a list of candidates.

Tried to avoid phrases that were too literary or limited to specific images - (like "close, but no cigar" or "once in the blue moon").

Then I chose the four candidates to explore in sketches.

My challenge is to avoid using tought bubbles, arrows etc. and explore how far I can translate the idea and still clearly capture "logic" and "mood" of the idiom.
