I couldn’t sleep and needed to channel a lot of energy. Here is the result, a drawing for my father (with metallic Sharpies and a black Sharpie). It’s called “The Tomita Planets”. A wonderful musician named Isoa Tomita performed a number of classical pieces on the Moog, which (if you’ve never heard about it) is a bizarre early synthesizer. One of the pieces he played on the Moog was Holst’s musical suite The Planets. It’s my dad’s favorite rendition of the piece so I thought I’d create a weird, abstract visual version of it. Obviously very abstract. There are far more “planets” on the canvass than we have in our solar system. 😛
Be well, friends.
