The drawings begin with a set of rules (a system), a grid on the paper and a supply of pens. The process includes a tally kept of the line count, which adds to the intensity of the labour of drawing and also adds to the meditative quality of the work. Frequently there comes a time in the drawing process when ‘mistakes’ are made. These are welcome because the outcomes cannot be predicted and are often surprising.
