The breakdown laws elements on how I create my work 



1. Story

This element combines illustration and storytelling through the use of objects as symbols and corresponds with understanding universal connections that come with adulthood, beginning at age 25. This stage represents the bigger picture, the coming together as a whole, and the understanding of it that comes only through wisdom gained by experience.

This concept is realized as the work as a whole in which technique and illustration are combined.

2. Elements of Mystery

This element employs the aspects of curiosity and exploration of childhood and adolescence by hiding images and characters who serve as navigators within the larger piece for its viewer to find as well as to keep the viewer entertained and engaged. In this life period, ages 5 through 16, early stages of disabilities like Dyslexia are discovered while at the same time unusual talent emerges and is honed. This stage is marked by exploration and discovery and corresponds with the age of reason.

This concept is realized in the work through abstraction and the ability to see things in a 3D format that comes with Dyslexia.

3. Technique

This element builds upon lessons learned in childhood. This period is marked by advancement in understanding and actions, corresponding to coming of age, ages 16 – 25.

This concept is realized in the work through composition and value and the complex interweaving of images using stipple and pointillism.

4. Description

This element invites viewers of all stripes into Camp’s private creative world, giving his audience a window into the purpose and story of each piece. This concept is realized through the written word.
