For my surface research studio class, I have a project, which I will dub the 30,000, because the criteria is that we must create a piece of art on a special type of 22" x 30" paper that meets the following criteria:
- We must use a micron pen or crow quill (with Bombay India ink)
- We must make at least 30,000 marks using said drawing instrument
- It must be abstract art
For many days and nights, I fretted about what I would do. Then somehow I got inspired by snakes, because well I've always had a weird fascination and love for snakes and have always loved looking at how detailed and lovely their scales look up-close. So snakes were my first inspiration. I finally formed a pretty concrete idea on Sunday night (after scrapping two ideas and having to restart my outline) and this is what I got done yesterday (Monday night).
