This drawing was started over two years ago, and has undergone dramatic changes in that time. It has been abandoned for months at a time, but I always had to come back to it. Starting life as a series of blobs, in the same way as Elemental, first I worked into it with pencil, rubbed most of it out, then with brown-toned black ink, making some of the ink bleed by brushing on water. The next step was working in again with blue-toned black ink, and again forcing bleeds with water. Along the way fine linking lines were added, and now I am beginning to add punched holes.
However, this is not the end – more pen work is needed, and ultimately I am planning to cut it up to make a cube … there may even be some colour added, but probably not. For me this is a large work, A2.
Below, the first image is the drawing as it is now, followed by it in its pencil stage (with some untouched areas of original blob), then details of the most recent version.
