Leaky Realities is an artistic experiment for me. While most of my ink drawings are completely freehand, here I used a compass to inscribe a set of intersecting and overlapping circles on the paper.
The compass lines were used as a guide to set up the overall composition and rhythm of the drawing. Once the pencil lines were overlaid with enough simple ink lines and geometries to define the sweep of each arc, the pencil lines were erased. Shaded areas and complex fine line details fleshed out and built up the balance of the drawing.
