Contact sheet for your plotter's tools

Each time I buy a new pen follows a moment of appropriation. What's its thickness? What happens when I draw over another line? Is the ink liquid or viscous?

Through all these questions, I try to understand the texture that is in each tool and which shape vocabulary is most relevant.

I decided to compile this research into contact sheets plotted with different tools.

Want to try with your own tools? You can download the first contact sheet file right here! Other will follow soon!

You can use this contact sheet to see the effects of opacity, filling, volume created.

Don’t hesitate to use it with your own tools and share it with me at @arnaudpfef and #generativehut !

Here are the pen and brushes I use for this sample :


Concentric circles


Rotation line


Spiral pattern


Gradient shape
