Welcome to Symmetrical Universe
Welcome to Symmetrical Universe, the artwork of Stephen Pitts. My drawings are all done completely by hand, using fine-tipped Rapidiograph 000 pens. I use a ruler and a compass to generate a pencil line grid. Once the grid is in place I then draw the designs in ink. I generate images randomly and my vision sometimes changes significantly during the process of creating a drawing. I draw one symmetrical feature at a time, much like growing a crystal. My first drawings were inspired by mandala images, but more recent drawings are inspired by mechanical elements surrounding me.
