Sketch for Voronoi Monologue series of drawings, now available from my shop.


Some new drawings¬† I’ve been making over the past couple of days – part of a series of excavations, so called because I’ve been thinking about drawing as a process of mining.

Simply counting specific numbers of movements (straight-lines) per glyph and trying to avoid repetition of similar forms allows the shapes almost form themselves, hiding the layer beneath allows for collisions, building a dense cacophony of structures [...]
