Comb Murex in macro by TheColclough
Comb Murex in macro
I first saw one of these improbably dramatic shells in Australia in 1997, was entranced, and finally managed to acquire a specimen of my own a few years later.

Photographed on a frosted-glass table with my new Nikon D7100 and my Dad's 60mm macro lens.  Auto Equalize filter in GIMP.  That's it really.

The Arc Phase Variations, No. VI by TheColclough
The Arc Phase Variations, No. VI
The geometric principle underlying this drawing took a very, very long time to develop from initial concept to the finished work - something on the order of two years, in fact.

I got ambitious with the geometry on this one - some of its predecessors had experimented with getting elements to fold back on themselves and mess around with the layer sequence, but the fifth drawing took those ideas to a much knottier level.

The fourth drawing is something of a tangent, still using some of the series' usual visual ideas, but tackling them rather differently, most notably focussing on a segment of a single very complex circle instead of showing a group of interconnecting ones, and employing a lot more irregular freehand texturing than any of the other Variations.

The Arc Phase Variations, No. III by TheColclough
The Arc Phase Variations, No. III
Back to proper circles this time, and experimenting with a much more complex overall structure - the choice and positioning of certain elements is determined by incrementing mathematical sequences, although the z-order interactions are arguably a bit more linear than in the previous picture.  Still got no idea what I'm drawing here; I'll just do the ink-on-paper stuff and leave the interpretation of my circles to others...

Began this one in late 2011, and completed in early 2012.  Again, black Sharpie on A2 220gsm Winsor & Newton cartridge paper.
