  1. I admired this drawing the first time I looked at it, but it adds to the experience to see the construction of its parts laid out in time slices. Do you do any drawing in graphite beforehand? It would take courage to do such a complex drawing entirely and directly in ink.

    • Thank you. I draw it straight on with ink. It’s a stream of thought, so drawing it in pencil first takes all the spontaneity away. There’s not much room for mistakes because my lines follow a very certain and slow path.
