Thought this series of sketches by Picasso was a good example of abstraction as a process.
This is also relevant in the history of logos and even the history of the alphabet. Both started with "images." Logos used ti be much more illustrative towards realism and alphabets were pictographic. The development towards abstraction was a slow evolution, For instance, Chinese and Hebrew still maintain pictographic roots while the Western alphabet is purely abstract. Logos have become so abstract as to reveal almost nothing of the form they are meant to represent. The written language in the digital world is undergoing a huge transformation as well. Entire words and phrases are being replaced by individual letters. The virtual world is losing its roots in the material world. In painting and drawing there is a big trend by many painters to return to realism. Unfortunately here is a loss of spirit in many of these representations. Picasso's series above is fairly unemotional. What made, makes abstract art interesting toy me is the distillation of spirit and passion from matter. Eventually abstract art evolved away from emotions and became conceptual.
