Rhythm in Art and Jazz Art

I wanted to show some of my pen/graphite on paper drawings from different times. I have always loved to draw. To me, the power of the black line on paper is incredible. And when I begin a drawing it is like starting a profound and deep meditative process. I always follow the rules I’ve imposed upon myself which is to obey the definition of Jazz. I start with the line and then the line creates its own path through the composition. I finish by adding rhythm…it is hard to do, I know, after all it is a drawing, not a song…and I add the rhythm sometimes in the characters that populate my work…

These are prior to 2018 when my artistic trademark was Bodo…

    I like the way you combined the specific rhythm of graphic art (drawing, photography) with that of jazz.:)
