20 Drawings Doodeo 080327

These 20 drawings were done in a single session, non-stop, in 70 minutes. The playback here was compressed into 9 minutes. There was no planning ahead of time on what to draw. The drawings just came out the way they are. The accompanying music was by Manicure.

Correction: There is actually only 19 drawings. I thought I did 20.

Drawing A-B-C

I came across this wonderful video through
I have never thought there can be so much drama in watching a child painting the alphabets.
This video also happens to be an excellent illustration of my ideas on ...
1) Writing being a form of Drawing (illustrated by young Gradus W. Wouters on the left), and ...
2) Drawing being a form of Writing (illustrated by Job Wouters on the right).

How I wrote a drawing

I have a stack of old business cards with the blank side filled with hand-drawn "writing parts". I use them as flash cards.

A number of cards was randomly drawn. In this case, I picked 5.

The "writing parts" on these cards formed the "seeds" to "grow" the drawing. They were applied to the drawing in the order that they were drawn from the stack.

What eventually got put into the drawing was not limited to the selected cards. These cards merely served as a device to get the drawing going. How the drawing evolves and finishes depended more on how the mind - and the hands - respond to the drawing in progress. Below is the finished drawing.
