This was one of the early tests of using an ‘edge-map’ to define stroke direction. The edge-map can be any digital image and in this case it was simply a radial gradient which causes the strokes in this image to run either towards the center of the gradient or perpendicular to it.

The composition of the edge-map relative to the image that is being stroked is one of the key creative decisions in the process.
