Doodle #15

Sepia ink on illustration board. Materials are archival, as always.

Standard ACEO size: 2.5 x 3.5. Card is an original and signed on the back.

I don't begin these doodles with a design in mind. I draw random lines to divide the card into sections and begin filling them in with patterns. I choose patterns based on what appeals to me, and the patterns I see around me. I'm especially fond of these contour lines. The cards evolve as I go.

Certainly not a novel process, but I'm enjoying it.

My ACEOs -- doodles, collages, and paintings -- are now available through eBay: http://shop.ebay.com/lifeneedsart/m.html
