I'd like to get a little more abstraction into my painting but I'm procrastinating. There's still a lot of work to do on the Buddha Bombs and my subsequent sculpture project is going nowhere. I've also started an illustration project for a friend who's written a book but more on that later.
Instead, I've been working on another large pen and ink drawing of my latest favourite subject, pigs.
I've been staring at my earlier pig drawing and found myself focused on the random effects of the simple hatching in the floor tiles. It reminded me of the abstract drawings in last years Marie Ellis Prize at jugglers
So I've deliberately included several elements of pure pattern to get more abstraction into my drawing. I'm working towards a drawing almost completely filled with pattern. I'll get to the painting later.
