About Each Drawing

Although ORI was released as a digital NFT, the artwork contains many nods to styles and patterns found in plotter art. In fact, ORI is one of the first generative art projects by James that is not exclusively plotter based. The ORI algorithm has been re-engineered to provide a unique and new vision with paper and ink.

Each drawing takes the original artwork and applies extremely high-detail linework to showcase the geometry in a new context. Thousands of tightly packed lines can take between 4-8 hours to draw physically.

Because James has complete control of the artistic creation process, two distinct styles are being offered to collectors. It is intended that each purchase of a plotter drawing feels like a commission where the buyer has a say in the final product.

"Worked" drawings featured an additional layer of refinement. By hand, the drawing is splattered with chaotic ink drips that run down the canvas. A special technique was developed to replicate the digital spraypaint process found in ORI.

These drawings are produced as an edition of 30. Style does not effect edition number.

How purchasing works

Purchasing an ORI drawing is meant to be a bridge between the artist, the collector, and the artwork. Therefore each collector will have an opportunity to meet with James for 30-60 minutes to discuss the artwork and opportunities to customize their drawing (ink color, paint effect, etc.)

Choosing a Style

Shaded - -

Shaded plots contain thousands of extremely fine lines that re-envision ORI in black and white ink. Each drawing has extreme precision but is wonderfully imperfect. Subtle differences in paper texture and ink flow make for unique variations that cannot be replicated.

Worked - -

"Worked" plots take it to another level. On top of the shading, James has carefully added ink splatter that loosely mimics the paint dynamics in ORI. Each drawing is handmade using techniques explicitly developed for representing ORI in drawn form.


Each drawing contains thousands of lines and takes over 5-8 hours of plotting to finish. Careful tuning of the ORI vector algorithm was necessary to strike the perfect balance of spacing
