Stippled drawing finished- Genus 4

I'm thinking of each repeated form as representatives of different species of the same genus. This is an imaginary taxonomic chart.

This is the first piece in the Genera series, unless I abandon the whole thing. It's called Genus 4 because there are four forms, and I'm thinking Genus 1, 2, 3 would be displayed before this one in an exhibit.

new population maps

The map of the world has been redrawn in a new atlas which uses population rather than land mass to illustrate the size and shape of each country. Researchers from the University of Sheffield created the online atlas of 200 maps using distribution data to demonstrate population distribution and density.

Worldmapper's website is here:

I found out about this by Googling 'us population map' and ending up at the Rockstar blog here:

Stippled Drawing- in progress

The way I look at it each dot represents a population of one thousand people on this weird map. You can only imagine what they're going through.

Portland Phoenix Article

There's an
article in the Portland Phoenix about the PMA Biennial, my drawings are mentioned, here's what they said:

"Clint Fulkerson's graphite drawings are gorgeous. His 'Division Series' meditates on the process of mitosis and is suggestive of broader binaries. These contained works really emphasize the artist's hand, his ability to infuse structured and mathematical forms with an organic vitality with unwavering control."

asymmetric Rorschach test sketch

This is a sketch I did at work, figuring out a different way to systematically develop density starting with a geometric framework. I think it looks like a camel, a map of an island, and like a deformed roasted chicken.
