Abstractions in line art

This is a collection of sketches which, in a loose framing, constitute a series of abstractions and pattern. Each was made with the Rotring Isograph 0.3mm technical pen, entirely by hand.

While I've been jumping around between studies in engineering, arts, and humanities, a constant element has been my involvement in traditional craft, particularly pen and ink. While it is a lovely art form, these small drawings are also a meditation and a way to think through ideas visually.

I draw every single day, and I don't plan on stopping any time soon. Often, it serves as a bookend to busy bustling days in school or work.
