Albert Chamillard’s Pen Drawings

WORDS Michaela Stehr

Artist Albert Chamillard uses worn-out notebooks to create monochromatic, geometric doodles that are reminiscent of optical art.

His pieces are all made using pen, with a repetitive and three-dimensional quality that nods to the popular ’90s tool – the spirograph – featuring numerous circular patterns and repetitive line work.

He draws a few hours per week, often while on the phone or in meetings, where he plans out his concise illustrations. When he isn’t “doodling” he runs a drawing and bookmaking studio.
