Compass, Ruler, Paper and Now...

Back in the day, when the world was black and white as the girls would say, I spent many an hour with my compass and ruler and a sheet of white typing paper, drawing geometric designs.  I would make grids and circles and loops, coloring them in with my colored pencils or flairs.

I recently saw a couple of videos on circles and mandalas and it brought me back to 'the good old days'.  And I couldn't find my compass.  And I couldn't sleep.  So Photoshop and I spent a couple of late night (or early hours, depending on your point of view) and produced these.

It is certainly easier on one hand to utilize Photoshop to make these designs-rotating, flipping and duplicating.  But I'm still looking for my compass.  I can tell there will be some more of these in my future.
