A strange boy is weaving a course of grace and havoc

So my friend Tim isn't the jewellery kind. Well, not your gold plated chain kind anyway - more of your wooden beads bought on a Goan beach type of guy. However he never throws anything away. This drawing was made from some chains that he collected as a child. Before the teenage years (that we don't mention).

I'm really disappointed with this drawing actually. Quite uninspiring. I had a much better drawing in my head. I don't like the composition and no matter how many more chains I threw at it it didn't seem to get any better. Oh well.

Aaah, remember the days when Snickers were called Marathons and everything was good with the world?

Here's what I like about it. In the main bulk of it where all the chains are jumbled together, it starts to work like an abstract piece only with lots of detail. Detailed-abstract. A new form of art - hooray!

OMG, I got dizzy just looking at this! You have such a wonderful knack of taking many things and making them beautiful when they are all together!!

Detailed abstract!! Great choice of words.

You're out of your gourd :-) I think these chains are very graphic, and it makes for an original spread. I love your choice of composition. I'm off to favorite it on Flickr cause it's just so darn good.
