Ships free in the USA (or pick it up in Boston). Please inquire about shipping to other locations – I can usually cover most of the costs. Original paintings from my shop ship fully insured with a typical turnaround time of roughly 10 business days (less for small items).

Archival inks on acid free paper – pigmented art marker, pigmented brush pens and pigmented fine liner pens. Drawn by hand (not digitally) using drafting tools and templates.
Disclinations are defects in liquid crystalline textures. The molecules that make liquid crystals are generally rigid and asymmetric, with one axis defining a “director” – the direction the molecule “points”. These directions can be mapped out in a liquid crystal using optical techniques (for example, ellipsometry). The maps are typically represented as patterns of parallel arrows or dashes that change direction and sometimes lose their orderly parallel direction in areas – called “disclinations”.
My recent group of drawings, “Idea Cycles” are hand drawn without digital aids. They combine careful freehand details with very regular geometric shapes using a ruler and compass and a variety of inking templates. Ink and paper Chemistry create their own set of challenges, which in turn lend to the character of these detailed drawings. The subjects of “Idea Cycles” are ideas – about Science and technology, but also about innovation and ideation in a more general sense.
