5 minutes with a cup of tea and a new pencil. Like meditation. Look forward to having more time to make but this'll have to do. A mix of things competing for time = life. How did I ever manage #100colourmixdays!?😁

A few pages more. I had a moment of realisation recently. I have always focussed on figure ground ambiguity. If I see it, I usually like it. If I can achieve it, it feels like a measure of success. When I was a child, the interior roof of our cars were covered in very small dots/perforations. I would stare at them for whole journeys, watching them pop forward and back in my vision - sometimes floating and sometimes firmly grounded. I don't know which way the causal connection runs, but it was interesting to connect that memory with my visual preferences. Took me a while 😊

Today's grid at the suggestion @alexandra.uro of the #endlesspossibilities🎨 to be found in a grid. #72accordionpages #markmaking #accordionsketchbook #artonpaper #markmakers

"A Mile, more or less" 2008. A previous accordion book work.
.
One mile, drawn in 63360 one inch lines (72 pages, 880 lines). Did I mention that I like repetition? 😊
.
This was exhibited in a group show called A Mile of Paper at the National Fine Art Museum in Valletta, Malta. A copy of the concept photo (All the parts/relics of the pencils that didn't make it to paper) is in the permanent collection there. The concept of the show was derived from Marcel Duchamp's A Mile of String.

Accordion books are a challenge to photograph for sure. Adding some graphite, acrylic, rubbing out, adding in. A little weaving. Just doing. .

Accordion sketchbook. Unintentionally started from right to left, who knows why...it's a start. Let's see where it ends (on the 72nd page, of course!)
