Incredible work! I'm a big fan of pointillism in ink.

Thanks! Ink pointilism is one of my favorite past times. But it's so darn time consuming.

I strongly believe art can be used to calm the mind and thus is a useful meditation tool.

A hidden pattern is still perceptible at a certain level, in my opinion.

So I'm pleased to hear it soothes your ADHD. That's one of my goals.
