An anthropomorph brew on a gradual continuum.

I would describe these asemic writings as an anthropomorph brew of  charicature, kinetics, gestures  and pseudo-writing.
I like to think of asemic writing as an inbetween or threshold phenomenon outside of conventional categories.
 On Tim Gaze's gradual Text-image continuum   the writing would probably be positioned between asemic writing and abstract images and the illustrations between abstract images and recognizable images.
The 'plankton' illustrations are elaborating on that concept of a gradual continuum.
They were set up similar to the writing but evolved until they now situate somewhere between scribbles, writing and some kind of primal organic entities.
