Drawings

This selection shows some favourite drawings - some new, some old - that I have not yet chosen to formally exhibit in a gallery or show.

They embody a number of recurring themes and techniques - plant-like binary drawings that evolve from using simple rules for connecting lines, ink-blots that have transformed into whimsical and strange figures, and "energy" drawings that harness the energy of a pen repeatedly moving across paper in patterns that subtly alter as the drawing grows.
