Often it is through the personal nature of our lines, forms, media and colors that viewers come to know a work as ours. Our "Marks" can be delicate, bold, gentle, aggressive, simple, complicated, obstuse or explicit, intuitive, 2D or 3D, moving or static. And the message, the concept becomes enhanced and individualized by how our hand/mind/experience creates that unique mark.
