Exploring a Theme: Documentation

I’m thinking about documentation as my theme for this year. I love incorporating text into my pieces, and as I thought about it, documentation pervades our lives. From birth certificates to death notices, passports and transcripts, we are a collection of documented events. The concept also links to my genealogy and history interests, as well as my career in editing technical material.

Here are some recent pieces along the theme, inspired by my recent trip to Quebec City.

I like having a theme for its unifying effect, but now I’m wondering if I chose one too quickly. How do you organize your work? Do themes work for you? If so, are they a guiding principle, or stumbled upon after the fact?
