Day twenty-four. Another horizontal surprise.
I've been a bit late in posting what I've been doing in this project so I'm looking at the drawings with new eyes. I was surprised when I uploaded this one. The obscuring of marks and then revisiting levels of transparency.
I want to look at some of these techniques in my non digital works. I'm not sure that I can reproduce them but it is interesting to think about tools and methods — thinking about trying some after I complete a series of drawings that I've got on the worktable.

Can't believe I've already made more than thirty drawings or that I've only made so few. I continue to explore mark making and shapes and scribbles.
I'm already into month two and I have many others to post.
I've found some new marks I want to make in my analog drawings. Looking forward to moving things I've discovered in this project to my studio.
So, I'm thinking at the end of the year I'll have a party at my studio or somewhere and sell all of these drawings I've been working on. They are digital so they'll be made as inkjet prints. That will keep the price low. I'll use standard frame sizes.
I'm thinking about whether I will only print one; making it an original or just make unlimited prints by request.
I'm also thinking about making a book of some sorts. Everything at the end is in flux. I'm just concerned about making the drawings.
The interface isn't designed to make landscape/horizontal drawings. Something sorta crazy happens when I try draw lanscape images. I will persist but the tools are all pointed the other way and it makes switching to make different marks difficult.
You would think they could use the accelerometer to switch directions
This is the first effort that I've really made.
It's fun but I need to get use to operating in this direction.
Another drawing where I've used a color background. Floating marks. A dancing cosmos. I made another set of tools. I'm starting to get some new kind of layering here. Also understanding how to create some additional softness.
