Artist's Description

This is an image that I made with the goal of incorporating four of my iterative styles into one image.

The structure in the top right is a bifurcating branch fractal.

The structure in the top left is an error spiral. An error spiral is a spiral form that was originally inspired by errors I made in drawing spirals with a ball point pen. I experimented with magnifying the characteristics of this form while allowing errors to add complexity and randomness.

The structure in the bottom left is something I call a triangular briar. It got that name because the initial image this appeared in started to look like some sort of abstract thorned bush.

The structure in the bottom right is an I fractal. I started drawing these when I realized that the letter I could be attached to itself and repeated to fill space.

Materials: Felt tip pen on sketch paper.
