Ghostly International’s newest limited edition art release from Andy Gilmore has launched at The Ghostly Store and it is more than awesome. We wrote about Andy’s amazing intricate geometric work back in 2011 and I thought it might be fun to see what he’s up to. Finding inspiration in nature and then translating that into a complex geometric grid is what Andy does best and so I was over the moon (pun intended) to see new prints from him that incorporates his signature computer graphics floating in outer space paired with natural images like nebulas.
This new edition of prints called the Nebula series consists of six different designs: Enantiodromia, Grandeur of Ghosts, Interstitia, Micrographia, Microtome, Novalis available in various sizes.
He says about these prints:
I have always approached making images from the perspective that I was summoning a cloud formation through which I would create the form it suggested to me. This approach began for me in my drawings, in which I would begin by drawing a cloud only for it to become a bird, a person, a plant, and so on. This is more or less the foundation of my creative process. Drawing as micro and the computer as macro–drawing as the Earth and the computer as (and of) the Sun. Nebula being the cloud of the Macrocosm.
Check out this video that Ghostly International created when they visited Andy in his studio:
I love that his process went from pencil to pen to computer: how the temperance of the pencil stifled him while the permanence of the pen turned him into a drawer—and yet CTL Z makes all the difference.
