Feb 2018 Ink abstract doodles

I have really been enjoying my 8.5 x 11 sketchbook, just one of the classic black hardback books, bigger than the ones I was stitching myself.  The benefit of the ones I was making is that they lay flat and I can water-color them, but the larger pages in this book allow for bigger drawings, or even more smaller ones.  I find that a small pen size (.03) is just the best, I write too large with larger pens, so I can really fit a lot of content on the larger pages.  Thanks for the book, Mom!

Meme Machines, journal pen & ink Feb 2018

"Meme machines" are my visualization for information, from thoughts spoken between people or digital information between satellites or telephones.
