Hmmm... You know, from now on, when (if) I get linked again, I'm going to add the links to the post itself, rather than mention it in my following post as I've been doing, 'cause that's what all the 'cool' bloggers seem to do. Like this - Link of the Day: Artistic 2-fer!
Anyway, down to business! I've got some more drawing to show, this time from April, 2013. But first, here's one I gave away last December (2012) to a guy at the bank where I work. He showed it to me the other day and I asked him if I could borrow it to post here. He said he's saving it against the day of my ultimate demise when he hopes it will suddenly become worth a fortune. (I'm keeping my eye on him.) I put the date of completion on all my work, but this one is unique because it's the only one I ever drew that had an expiration date! (It's a visual riddle - can you guess the answer?)

And now, April!
|9 color Complex Zig-Zag Easter Egg. 4/2/13|
|Lightening Bug. 4/3/13|
|Color Experiment - Magenta. 4/5/13|
This next one was actually drawn in March, but as it became part of a series of related drawings, I present it here.
The big annual college basketball tournament was on last Spring, and all the news reports were asking, "Who will make it to the Final Four?" Well, that got me wondering about the 'First Four' and who would win a tournament among them? I refer, of course, to the four basic elements from classic Greek natural philosophy; Earth, Air, Fire and Water.
So, to graphically represent this clash of the elements, I drew 3 designs, different in pattern, but uniform in composition, selected colors that represented the different elements, and raced to the center of each design, starting from the top and bottom with two conflicting sets of colors - depending on random fluctuations in the design to break any tie, the winner being determined by which set of colors dominated the central hub of each pattern. I got the idea from my earlier drawing, "Which One Wins? The One You Feed."
|I mean this one.|
So, here's my interpretation of the ultimate "Final Four" Tournament:
|Final 4 - 1st Round. Earth vs. Sky (Air), Earth Wins - 5 to 4. 3/9/13|
|Final 4 - 2nd Round: Fire vs Water, Water Loses - 3 to 5. 4/10/13|
|Final 4 - Final Round. Earth vs. Fire, Earth Wins - 13 to 11. 4/12/13|
|I mean this one.|
|Unfinished Zig-Zag Globe. 4/16/13|
|Semi-Random, Curved, Linked Structure, Broad Progression. B2T. 4/22/13|
|Semi-Random, Curved, Linked Structure, Narrow Progression T2B. 4/23/13|
That's all for now. Have a good weekend!
