Repetitive circular symmetrical patterns inspired by geometry, nature and the ancient art of mandalas

I love making repetitive and symmetrical patterns. They are fun and challenging. You decide your own rules with the first stroke of pen on paper. And then you follow it to let a pattern emerge. In a free hand drawing, the pattern is never perfect. The shapes might be uneven; number of lines or petals might be different; curves might turn at the wrong point and the lines might not be straight. But it would still result in a symmetrical pattern if the rules are unbroken. The symmetrical drawing patterns are mesmerising to look at with all their errors and imperfections; and remind us of the imperfect human hand behind their creation.
