The first 13 posts of my Bestiary generated so little interest that I see no point spending the next six months posting something that no one is interested in. I scrapped the whole project of e-Bestiary and we will look at something else.
My love conceived of schizograph about 20 years ago as undirected large scale doodling. She would pick up her Rotring pen and start drawing in one corner of a large sheet of paper and cover the whole surface in doodles until she reached the opposite corner. With time she added sophistication of textures and motives of diverse origin: Harry Clarke and Ernst Haeckel being the towering influences.
Not being able to liberate myself from the compulsion to draw images, I structure my own schizographs around ideas. The current series could be subtitled “Experiments in doodling” with additional influences of Sydney Syme, Bierdsley, Jacek Yerka and Nat herself.
Brain, after Miroslav Bartak.
Dinner was suggested by my schizographing cat.
This is borderline a schizograph, but doodling was unintentional.
