A new silver metallic ink pen was in the art stores so it became obvious to challenge myself and create a cool mandala with it. I am not exactly sure how I was able to keep all of the squiggles uniform throughout the piece, but the detail involved in this creation is mesmerizing! This was a fun free flowing mandala to create. A free style drawing within perfection. Named "Throwing Star." Completed May 1985. 15 1/2" x 15 1/2" metallic and color ink pens on white poster board. 175 hours.
Named "Space Breakfast." My vision in this mandala design was like having a egg splattered on the pavement. I was seeking a free style easy drawing that still had a certain perfection to it, and still showed that much time was involved with its creation. Notice how the outer large black areas are drawn with two different black pens. Also notice that the black was filled in 1/16" rows uniform throughout the art piece. Completed May 1984. 15 1/2" x 15 1/2" highlighter pen and black ink on white poster board. 150 hours.
Named "Hair." I just purchased a full set of color markers which was perfect timing to create a simple mandala full of color. The thought was to keep the mandala uniformity present, but the biggest concern was that the colors worked well with each other. The challenge also was to not put much time into the piece. Completed May 1984. 15 1/2" x 15 1/2" color ink pens on white poster board. 12 hours.
