Entopic graphomania

Playing around a bit with the surrealist drawing method called Entopic graphomania. 

Basically, you make a dot at the location of each imperfection in the paper.  Then you connect the dots using straight or curved lines.

I drew these in my little moleskine notebook, and colored them with my fine-liner pens. 

I found this method of drawing to be quite relaxing ... not too much thought in the process.

The first image I call "sleeping bird", and the second I call "stubborn".

I should be posting more frequently as my "busy season" winds down a bit and I have more time available for fun.

I do have lots of journals, sketchbooks and art books to fill ... I'm sure that Santa will be stashing a few more for me under the tree.
