A few changes with this one. I'm now using carbon black ink, which is fab! And I'm beginning to see how garments and backgrounds fit in with these images.

I would love to create a tarot deck so today I tried Le Mat from Ben Dov's Marseille Tarot. I wanted to see if the imagery would be interesting enough for me to want to repeat the process 78 times. Now that I've seen the patterns in this format, I'm hooked! I plan to alter the bodies and faces so the images will be in line with my own style of drawing.

Back to faces. Loving the slight angular lines in this one. One of the reasons I do so many eyes is because of the sensory issues I have. It's hard to filter things out so I often feel like a raw nerve. I see, hear, smell and feel everything. .

Here's a kaleidoscope of pattern against a dark background. I used a paintbrush and pot of ink to fill in. My hand really appreciated not having to do the background with pen! ✋❤😆

This is the largest piece I've done so far... A3. Would love to go larger! 😄 The underlying shapes are lilies... all done in pen and ink. Felt like my hand was going to drop off. Will try filling in with a brush next time. 🎨

I'm feeling more confident about what I am doing and really appreciate the art style I now have. This week, I've been transferring drawings into better quality sketchbooks. I took the opportunity to explore additional shapes and forms to see how these look within the drawings I make. My line work feels more relaxed and open, almost as if the drawing could complete itself. 😃 Listening to music helps. Today it was H.U.V.A. Network... so relaxing and great for artistic flow. Definitely seeing a cosmic influence here. 💫🎨❤ .

This is from my second sketchbook... dedicated to faces, flowers and landscapes. I'm exploring backgrounds. 😊

This week I opened up a new sketchbook and dedicated it to pattern making. I'm calling this my pattern library. 📚😃 I've been fascinated by the presence of patterns around and within me since childhood so this is an important aspect of atypical perception and self-expression in the art I make. 🎨

I want to add flowers to some of my drawings so tried a simple arrangement next to a face. I'm also drawing with a thicker pen... which makes everything bolder. Lots of fun to do... love the results! 😃 .

Have put the geometry aside because I ended up feeling completely blocked. So good to get back to making patterns the way I enjoy making patterns! #danikaanders #instaart #ukartist #shamanism #outsiderart #abstractart #penandink #lineart #shamanicart #primitiveart #visionaryart #shamanicart #expressionism #illustration #neoexpressionism #intuitiveart #intuitive #autismart #autism
Hi folks! Have been away because life got busy with visits to mental health professionals and changes in medication. Anyway, to cut a long story short... I now have a diagnosis in writing for ASD (autistic spectrum disorder) and PTSD. Yay!!! My partner and I are tremendously relieved as this gives us the power to access the support we need. Hope you are all well and happy. Will be back soon with more drawings and artwork. ❤
