The concept of this system is simple: I had 20 different sharpies, and decided to fill a canvas with roughly 1cm lines, rolling a d20 to decide their colour, and a d4 to decide their direction.
Once I'd finished, I thought it looked boring, so I drew these blobs in between the lines, which wound up looking like separated water droplets. I then coloured these in randomly and voila.
This piece, however, has given me its fair share of trouble. Originally I had done it with watercolour pencils on canvas. Once I'd finished I had misted the canvas in an attempt to set the colour more permanently into the canvas, but it all bled everywhere and ruined the whole thing.
So, I redid it with pen, which looked much better. But, when I moved house, it rained, which meant a couple of hours with Tip-Ex and sharpies to try and fix it.
Finally, it was complete, and I hung it on my wall.
Unfortunately, I hung it in direct sunlight, meaning that when I came round to producing these prints, some of the colours had faded. I had to spend quite a while trying to fix it digitally, and you can judge for yourself how well I did.
I design systems that use a set of rules and some dice rolls to produce geometric art. I explain these systems in depth on my TikTok page, @onlyhuwman, on which I have 11,500 followers as of July 2021.
