About the I’m Sorry flower:
This November 2015 version of the small I’m Sorry flower traces its roots back to a July 2001 reduced–size copy of a September 2000 full–size digital versions of the I’m Sorry flower. The first full–size digital versions of the I’m Sorry flower were made back in April of 1998.
In April of 1998, I drew the original pencil version of the I’m Sorry flower on a piece of note paper, as a doodle. As I drew that doodle, I was thinking about how I had hurt the feelings of my dear friend, Salma, and how sorry that made me feel. I wanted to do something special for her, so I used that doodle as a model to create the first digital versions of the I’m Sorry flower. By the third draft version, of a work still very much in progress, I could not wait any longer. I sent my email apology, along with a copy of that early version of the I’m Sorry flower, to my friend. As it turned out, it was a good thing that I had sent Salma that early draft copy of the I’m Sorry flower.
