Ten Year Anniversary
February 22, 1999...1999?...Yes. 10 years ago today I began drawing on 5" X 6" cards as a disciplined practice - one per day - then collecting the cards and storing them in boxes. The premise of the exercise was to use improvisational drawing to reveal my 'unwritten rules' and then code the rules into an autonomous drawing software. The software hasn't been written yet. But ten years of observing my own creative process has produced other amazing results. Today's drawing is the first in this series of thousands of drawings. What remains persistent? My fascination with variations of the grid, levels of scale, diagrammatic space, and whimsey are all still part of the practice. Was this a divination drawing even then? I think it is absolutely divine!
