This is a page out of my sketchbook. At the time, I had this idea where I would fill up the entire page. Every page of the book. Very little space was to be left untouched because somehow it would be a waste.
I suppose it was a militant reaction to minimalism (which does have its merits, but it's been done to death a hundred times over). Possibly equatable to Maximalism. A noble idea, but a little obsessive, time consuming, shallow, and ultimately....pointless.
My sketchbooks have since changed. The lines and characters are similar, but now its a lot freer and more exhilarating to use.
