It's funny how images come up again and again. I was just reviewing my bedside notebook and I found an almost identical drawing that I'd sketched as a possible idea for one of the canvas 'thread drawings' that I'm currently making. However, the image I drew in my sketchbook was drawn several weeks after I drew this envelope and was directly inspired by a book of Islamic calligraphy. I'd completely forgotten that I'd already drawn something so similar on an envelope. Clearly I'm just primed to notice and respond to certain types of imagery.
