Geometric gel pen drawings

While hanging around in my studio during Culture Crawl this past weekend I decided to work on a few gel pen drawings so visitors could see how I work. The first one I started sold before I could even finish it because someone liked it as it was, and I was okay with the drawing’s unfinished state. I was happy a few of these doodles found new homes on the weekend because they’ve been an experiment for me.

The circular one pictured here is the second of these drawings I began over the weekend, but wasn’t able to get very far with it until yesterday. I like making shapes with these doodles, and this one in particular resembles the twinkling crystalized surface of a planet.

The second drawing is one I’d originally created for the show I have up at Kafka, but there wasn’t room for it in the end. It was an experiment in exploring a shape other than a circle.
