Similar to generative computer graphics, generative drawings are created by repetition of some process, although different artists may give some different definitions. This process could be very specific for example drawing a series of circles with a particular relation to each other, or in this case drawing lines of similar curvature and spacing and a certain degree of variation. Generative drawings can be very similar to geometric fractals. Some artists use the term to describe a looser structure more similar to automatic drawing.

This is one of a few drawings from my sketchbook done in this manner, drawn in felt tip pen. Creating such drawings can be little time consuming but often very meditative. In the end it can create very beautiful images which are as much about the subtle variations, what some might call “human error,” as the consistent pattern.
