Using a background again in this drawing.
Still scribbling a bit. Having fun obliterating previous layers. The only really familiar marks are the dots. These repetitive scribbles come naturally. I use the same motions to loosen up before I start drawing in my studio. I do them much larger there though. It's a bit strange to scribble with your finger — the relationship between my finger and the mark are so off.
Enjoyed making this one.

Another background color experiment. The background color is added last which makes for strange and surprising halos at times. This is an absolute advantage of this digital medium. I'm not sure how I could every do this on paper.

Testing using a full color background. It's been a while.

Just getting into making something with more busy energy. Enclosing circles with elipses.

What is going on with this color scheme? Maybe only one more in this space. It's strangely soft.

Still light. Easy.
Repeating my little football. I really like that form. I'm thinking of using it more repetitively. I love using the orange. Valencia!

Minimal drawings continue.
Supe light touch. Floating.

Working with the same set of tools as the last drawing. Keeping a light touch. Looking at how these marks could move into an analog space with a substrate that will absorb the ink or pigment.
Thinking more about moving the drawings from the digital to the analog.

Made some new brushes for this drawing. They respond to speed. When I draw fast they make a very thin line. As I slow down it becomes thicker. It has the feeling of using a device that is loaded with pigment and the substrate absorbs based on the time spent in any one spot.
Since I'm using a digital device this pigment doesn't bleed but it reacts. Gonna try a couple more.

There's something silly about this drawing. I'm enjoying the thick inky lines. Like paint markers.
