While this is not a single-celled organism by any means, it is quite shape-shifting, as amoeba’s are known to be. I was having fun with triangles again, and the word “amoeba” was just too irresistible as a title!


“Amoeba,” 5 x 7 inches, pen and ink, available in my shop.

This was definitely one of those drawings that I didn’t know where I was when I started, and I was never quite sure it was finished, but it was a fun new way to play with the triangle. It was nice to sit down with no particular intention and see a drawing grow beneath my pen.

This one for sure makes me realize how each drawing is an exercise—coaxing my brain into a new way of thinking, as only art can. It’s like thinking in shapes—constantly looking and gauging how to make the drawing into a complete thought or sentence. I’m beginning to understand how time is the main denominator in art—if you keep working at it over time (I’m talking years and decades), you will start to develop complete thoughts, and you will start to really speak a unique language that can only be developed through trial and error and exercise.

I know I’m just at the beginning, but I’m excited about the ride!

Happy art making!
