Now, that's just pure genius...
I am seriously impressed.
 
 
This is a detail of a larger drawing. It was sort of a "freeflow" or "automatic" drawing, where I started at the top and went down, creating the drawing with as little forethought and planning as possible.

Pencil on sketch paper

(As a side note: I do not reccomend using sketch paper for full fledged drawings, this one is only a year old and the paper has already gotten very brittle)
 
 
This work, like many of your works, has a fractal quality about it.  I feel as if I could zoom into it and keep seeing similar shapes and details emerge, even as it goes down to the molecular level.  Another aspect I seem to see is anthropomorphic and zoomorphic shapes, like faces and figures and embryos, coming out of the work, like faces that emerge when staring at rocks or a tree trunk.

I really like this picture! It's different, a bit on the dark side; but it really appeals to me-but I'm just not sure why?
