In this particular drawing I took the liberty of traditional free style drawing to create a kind of mystic language which surrounds the composition. The cuneiform type script is a stream of consciousness. The mixture of rigid linear abstraction and free form make for an unusual spatial quality. Finished in 2020, this drawing took roughly 80 hours to complete or two weeks.
