Subject matter
This work comes from one of the artist's Echo series; there are three sets. From references to the Big Bang to images of pollen, these works open up new narratives. As with much of the artist's work, this drawing also represents the relationship between humans and nature. The specks of graphite also bring to mind images such as swirling dust particles, the Milky Way, and swarms of insects.

Physical Description
This drawing has a series of abstract marks and small shapes that form a kind of messy orb at the center of the page. The print is signed and dated (u.l.) "EC 08" in pencil.
