Artist's Description

Pigmented archival art marker and pigmented “Micron” fineliner pens on acid free Strathmore 500 series mixed media paper.
6×8 inches
I’ve been working on a series of drawings that juxtapose freehand circles, lines and spaced patterns with circles, lines and shapes drawn using drafting templates (all hand-drawn ink on paper, with an actual pen in my actual hand, NOT “hand” drawn using digital stylus and a mouse). Each drawing evokes a different complex idea, usually STEM and nerdy. The series is titled “Idea Cycles” because of the cyclic nature of ideas. Many of the drawings evoke several very different concepts and phenomena simultaneously, because that’s how I think (and that’s how the math and physics behind science works).

This one is called Odd Encapsulations because the way the circles and other parts of the drawing interact and are structured makes me think of phospholipid vesicles, encapsulation approaches that mimic them, and the role of microenvironments and encapsulation in some origin of life theories and in the basic units of biological function.

That’s a start, and you can use your own imagination and insights from there.
