In this new Wild Gears video, I draw two patterns featuring parallel lines.
Wild Gears’ creator, Aaron Bleackley, invented this cool feature. Most of the larger gears have different sizes of holes. Since the gears are laser cut from a sheet of acrylic, the “holes” fall out when you unwrap the gears. But some of the holes have holes. I call them donuts. They can be used to draw lines in parallel by placing them in a hole you just used and drawing again with the pen in the donut hole.
In this video, I use different colours for the parallel lines. See also this older post on parallel lines.
This video unfolds in real time without commentary, just the quiet sounds of pens, gears and paper.
