Here is the start of what will be my Gocco on wood project. This image began as one of those ideas that come to me just as I'm falling asleep. I jumped out of bed and scribbled a sketch, then the next morning scanned it into the computer and cleaned it up till it looked like what you see above. Next I'll print it out and re-ink it with a brush pen to put a little life back into it. The computer step is helpful in adjusting proportion and symmetry, and saves lots of paper as I play around with details. Next steps: ink the design, photocopy the ink, and burn a Gocco screen. Then comes what I hope will be the fun part! I'll post more pictures soon!
