Connected circles

This was started with the whole image in mind, the whole drawing just building up from these simple forms. I wanted to see what would happen with the overall effect of lines criss-crossing all over the place, connecting up most circles but leaving others untouched. There was a certain satisfaction seeing the circles being surrounded or joined up by these communication lines, a comparison to today’s ever complex systems where we all stay in touch or parts of the world that come under the ever increasing threat of road building and other forms of communication.
