I love cyan, magenta, yellow and black. This project explores using individual drawings as color layers. Each piece comprises four hand-made black and white drawings representing cyan, magenta, yellow, or black process colors. The layers create purples with magenta and cyan, greens with yellow and cyan, and reds with magenta and yellow when layered on… Continue reading I ❤️ CMYK
I’m enjoying making these new pieces. I’ve been going through many test photocopies while playing with distortions. Rather than using the clippings and mounting them to a board and connecting them, I layered patterns on the photocopier bed itself. Then, with the resulting copy, I joined the different designs with pen and ink. When working… Continue reading Collage, Photocopy, Ink
I started to take a different approach to making Coloring Book pages this weekend. I began with a stack of test distortions from pulling and twisting other drawings on a photocopier bed. I then chopped those tests into smaller components, not following any outlines. I then took a sample of them and put them on… Continue reading Collage from clippings
Echos is my most recent collection on Objkt. It takes hints from other projects, like Late Night Sketches, and adds repetition. The repetition is used sparingly, with a 1/150 chance to replicate over an arc, growing in size as the loop progresses. The base images used to build each mint are some I’ve used before,… Continue reading Echos
I’m trying to get back into the habit of drawing every day, even if it is small. I’ve realized now that some skills are not like riding a bike. They are more like riding a bike with no hands and then trying to replicate that trick in your 40s; you will have a bad time.… Continue reading Putting ink on paper
I started a new collection today on Objkt called Vivid Bytes. I’m reworking some code I made as an experiment over a year ago into a fxhash project. I really liked the look of the outputs from that experiment and have been thinking of freshening it up for a while. I also found another AI… Continue reading Vivid Bytes
I started working on a new p5js sketch this week to make seamless background patterns. I started with an underlying grid and walked over each of those cells, adding a piece to this worm-like pattern. Some will continue on to the next cell. Others will terminate and start a new part of the pattern. I… Continue reading Pattern Tiles
I started working on a new series of drawings. Most are ink drawings with tightly packed lines. Creating these drawings is mesmerizing, working out from one point until the page is filled.
I tried a small drawing experiment tonight. I started with an image that could go into my Coloring Book collection, then took it to a copier and distorted it on the glass. I added a bit to the distorted drawing with each iteration and then distorted that one. The results got more chaotic when more… Continue reading Destroying a drawing
I had a productive drawing week this week. A few nights this week, I sat down to start drawing with something on in the background on Netflix or Disney+, and when I’d look up at the clock, it was 1 am or 2 am. They were mainly done with a Sharpie and a Pilot Precise… Continue reading A productive drawing week!
