MicroDoodle Moon

Jeffery Gauss's avatar Jeffery Gauss

My MicroDoodle Moon is a compilation of 25 years of ideas and dreams about the man in the moon. The Moon has been around since the beginning of the earth. I have been collecting and writing stories about the moon. Songs, poetry and moon lore have been a part of our culture for 1000's of years. Every month the Moon transforms itself from the new to full. As the cycle repeats, the oceans and the Earth transform in rhythmic vibrations of life. Using a .13 tech pen the transformation is complete. From afar you see the man in the moon. Up close you see a world of micro doodles & words. I began by painting several layers of phosphorescent blue & teal paint. The entire piece glows in the dark. I drew out the moon & began to fill in the outer area with my micro doodles.. The piece took 400 hrs to complete. It will draw the viewer in & with the aid of magnifying glasses you can zoom in and never see the same thing twice. Explore.........
