more "smudges" in Thin Red Line























A few more drawings in this tiny book to show how they develop and change in the process. I tend to get a bit carried away and they sometimes lose their directness and become a bit busy. I'm only about half way through and can't help wondering what the last drawings will be like. (I'm trying to use more or less the same materials in each drawing)


























I've started to open up the pages with holes and folds but it's a bit hard to see so I'll take some photos instead of scanning to show the spaces better.

































The three-dimensional changes as the pages open offer a new and exciting visual experience.

Yes it is fabulous Jack. It seems to get better as you go along so I can't imagine how wonderful those last pages will be!

Thanks my friends but I thinks that maybe you were seduced by the hidden french text.

Really great, inspirational, Jack. What's the size of this precious book? I'm going to try one.....thank you!

Thanks for your kind words Jan. The tiny book is 13.5cms long X 5.5cms wide X 1.5cms deep. I've done 180 little drawings and only half way through - hope I can make it to the end.

These are very interesting drawings... the red lines are so strong and dynamic.

Thanks "layers". The red marks are red china graph pencil severely smudged.
