Yesterday's Art-Toon Doodle Experiments using directionality and intersection were inspired by the book "Drawing as a Sacred Activity" by Heather C. Williams.
After teaching her students to look for this "y-shaped glyph," she encourages them to take it one step further, and to look for the larger pattern itself, the constellation of several y-shaped intersections seen all at once.
Quotes from "Drawing as a Sacred Activity"
p. 43: "The over-lapping direction on the paper corresponds precisely with the object standing in front of the other thing, whatever it is."
Or in other words:
p. 43: "...the direction on your paper that ends when it intersects the other direction corresponds precisely with the object that visually goes behind the other one."
