I am so drawn to this form of communication, first, with myself, as I do believe I ennervate and massage the speech centre of my wee brain when I permit myself to communicate with only shapes and colours. I started Dear Merebeth in Feb. 2015 as a way to massage and enervate my lyrical skills and happily, I was led to Asemic Writing (Thank you Moribund Facekvetch). I mean, words are symbols of symbols, yes? So why hem one's self in? All roads lead to deeper feelings in my world and the muddling together of all my artistic explorations in drawing and music and language bring me to my happy place. Laura's Bar: The Muddle & Brew

"Special Edition 2" March 31, 2017. I think this would fall in the category of graphic art rather than Asemic Writing. I've posted it here for fun. It is a pixillated version of "Special Edition I" and I love how the colours are selected and boxed with the editing program I use. If this could be considered Asemic Writing, I'd say it is A Mystery...
I had so much fun this week creating Dear Merebeth images with words as well as creating Asemic Writing pieces, some of which I simply filtered to change the colour, very happy with how the impact of the shapes changed with colour variance. A recurring theme in D.M., "the couch" came back in full force this week.
