Mechanics of a Damaged Mind

This is an experiment that I've been working on sporadically for a few weeks and I finished it today. I set out to draw a completely random picture - just anything that came into my head. I stared in the middle of the page and progressed round and round until I got to the outside, aiming to cover every inch of the page with some sort of design.

During the process I realised that is that if everything is completely random it is not so interesting to look at - the eye is not drawn to anything specific. Therefore, as I progressed to the extremes of the page, I tried to work in more geometric designs and bolder patterns. I think that they work much better. I suppose that even chaos needs a few rules.

this is amazing! Not only it is very interesting to look at, but I could stare at it for a long time and always will be discovering new things and patterns!

A really impressive piece of artwork! And yeah I do agree that chaos needs a few rules.

This must have taken you a serious amount of time eh?

Cheers! Yes it certainly took a while, but was a fun way of winding down as this sort of thing is quite theraputic to do actually.
