Watercolour Ghost - Yellow

Unique hand decorated pen plotter art

The classic ghost, but with a splash of colour added by hand. Making something already unique even more so. Would look great in a minimalist room or home office.


The code I wrote to generate this was supposed to make spirals, but fairly early on I found that by adjusting the starting and ending offset, and with a little bit of wiggle, I ended up with these ghost-like shapes.

Since then, occasionally I like to return to them to try something new. Today was all about adding a splash of colour. What I particularly love about these is the clearly mechanical nature of the precision pen plotting, offset with the organic nature of running a brush down the page.

Why not buy the whole set! I kid, of course, just snag one as they'll be gone until I get around to playing with colour again.

Special Instructions

The pen ink used in this work is archival-ink, light-fast and fade-resistant, the paper is acid-free and also fade-resistant. The coloured ink will change with exposure to light, but Ecoline ink fades are less than most. That said, it's still probably wise to frame it and hang it somewhere out of direct sunlight.
