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.

John C Ricker is a mixed media artist from Minneapolis Minnesota. His interest in photography started as a fascination with cameras when he was eight. His interest in abstract art started with doodles he drew in his class notes during high school.

When his fascination with cameras met photoshop, he began to create colorful composite images. When his interests in chaos theory, complexity and fractals met his abstract art, his lines started to act like cells in an organism.
