I discuss three different drawing techniques developed throughout the course of my artistic practice: counted marking drawings, chaos drawings and circle curve drawings. By using a series of drawings as a single work of art, I will create linear sequential artists' books based on fractals, growth patterns, and numeric sequences. A linear sequential artwork consists of series of images that display in a specific order from beginning to end.
