"Usually when I come up with an image for a piece, it's pulled from an emotional state. I try to sketch up something that would be the most cathartic to paint. I feel like it’s not worth painting if I don’t get some sort of self therapy from it! Once I get a decent thumbnail roughed out of it, I'll start drawing it up on whatever canvas I'm using then start painting." - David Chung
