A new combination oof marks. Really playing with making different tools and determining what kind of energy or representational value they have in the drawing.
In this one I learned a bit more about a fluid transparent mass.

Everything in this drawing is about layering. Using many mark-making tools in this piece. Crazy tight balls of wire, stamped transparent marks, and circles which I love on the iPhone. A bit of scribbling and I feel like I’ve drawn a big ball of lint.

I wanted to get back to dragging a color accross space as if I had a piece of pastel in my hand.
Working with the same kind of emergent shapes as some of the earlier line drawings; only this time creating more mass.
Love this shape and I’m going to experiemnt more with it.

The sun energy is undeniable.
Everything feels turned up to 10. Embracing making these knots of lines.

This set of marks in this color space is so much about nature.
I imagine them in graphite and I would think of concrete and asphalt.

Fronds come to mind. Little fiddleheads. They just flow out of my finger and onto the iPhone.
There is something magical about it.

Working with some shapes. They are the kind you make when you are a kid. I always want to make marks like when I was a kid. I try to bring them into my sketching all the time.
Those marks activate something in my brain that frees me to draw more orderly marks with joy.
It’s hard to explain.

The crossing of lines has always been a way I have wanted to drawing. Making a space transparent or opaque with little openings that can't be denied. Here the open and closed places that obscure most of the marks asks me to seek them out. Only a slight tonal variation. I feel as if I'm standing in the shade.

Nature presses itself forward. An abundance of greens in different textures. Just a couple sticks and fallen seeds and pods. The squirrels have been busy in the graveyard.
