The Universal Graph

Here's another in my patented geometric style. This one is called "The Universal Graph" and is inspired by the standard of two-dimensional graphing, the Cartesian coordinates. The perpendicular white lines are the two dimensions of the coordinates, X horizontal and Y vertical. The other lines in the picture are straight and curved outcomes of various equations, all plotted on this graph. It's universal as long as you are working in 2-D, and thus this flat image and screen.

This is done in acrylic, acrylic watercolor, and some watercolor metallic/iridescent paint. The lines are added on with acrylic markers. Some spray paint was used. This is all painted on a piece of dark blue Canson paper. I hope to display this at Balticon late this month.

"The Universal Graph" is acrylic and watercolor on blue paper, 11" x 8 1/2", May 2011. Click on the image for a somewhat larger view.

I can almost see the iridecent effect, I am sure it looks great in real life!

I've been sleepily looking at all your art by-products from the last month or so. Love the Fairy Liturgy. You raise many interesting questions indeed.
