Zen Of The Pen

There is a method of making art called automatic drawing in which a mark is placed on the paper and then another and another and with no apparent conscious intent a series of abrupt beginnings and endings continues until something like a finality is reached or perhaps the hand refuses to work anymore.

Yes, I like the idea behind automatic drawing, kinda like doodling but somehow on a deeper level. Perhaps the technique is a way to let the sub-conscious speak without being influenced by rational and learned thought responses. There is a big wide universe out there. I'm working along similar lines. tomzuk.com

Thanks for your comment. You too have some unique work. I especially like the pen and ink pieces.
