A page in purple ink that grew out of doodling one quiet evening.
A page that came from playing around with swirls in micron ink and then some prismacolor pencils.
A page that popped up while I was hanging out with some friends and just playing around with my pens.
Torr Seal (Remastered)
And here’s the lovable Torr Seal again, this time with some color and a cape.
I’m happy to announce that after ages of lurking here and loving it, I have finally taken the plunge and created an account. I love the work being shared and am excited to be a part of it all at last. my first post is a two-parter: two different versions of one design I created a little while back.
I’ve been a huge fan of sacred geometry for at least a year or so—seed/egg/flower of life, celtic knotwork, &c.—and decided to combine that with my lifelong love of the number 4 (and, by extension, squares) in a set of interlocking square links.
I like to think of them representing the 4 classical elements: (clockwise from top) Earth, Air, Fire, Water. another interesting reading I discovered is that they seem to represent the 4 base pairs of DNA (GATC) which are the building blocks of life as we know it. naturally, there are many more sets of 4 which could be referenced; and I invite you to choose the one(s) which speak(s) to you.
the version on the left was done with a Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen as well as Prismacolor colored pencils; and the version on the right was done with a brush-tip F-C artist pen and colored brush-tip F-C markers.
I hope you enjoy; and I look forward to sharing more of my work in the future.
It’s Torr Seal!
Another product of the weekly group meeting. ‘Torr Seal’ is a brand name of epoxy that can be used in vacuum/high vacuum chambers (Torr is a unit of pressure measure) and I’ve been using it to insulate a magnetic probe. While I was working, I thought of the multiple meanings of the word ‘seal’ and then had the idea to create a super-powered science friend to accompany the Awesome Opossum (http://www.skineart.com/?s=awesome+opossum). This afternoon’s group meeting gave me a chance to indulge my silliness.
An evening’s wandering in ink, inspired by the cold, steady rain outside and the anticipation of the spring flowers soon to follow.
