As a kid, I used to love filling my schoolbooks with geometric patterns and designs. One of my favorite geometric designs consisted in creating geometric webs from a pair of lines (more about this design at the end of the page).
I took this little design idea a little further, and created a full series of designs based on a geometric webs design. You can find each individual design below, and you can visit my Zazzle store here, if you want to check out some of my other geometric designs as well.
I included only images and links to the posters featuring this artwork in my Zazzle store, but you can purchase each of these designs in a wide variety of products, from throw pillows to water bottles.

About this geometric design:
As I mentioned before, this design was born out of a very simple geometric design I used to love doodling when I was a kid. You take 2 lines (no need to make them the same lenght), and create an angle with them. Then, you divide each line into any number of segments, the same number for each line. 8 or 16 usually worked for me, since they were easy to get about right by just dividing in half again and again.
You then take the first dot of one line, and connect it to the last dot of the other line. Then, you take the second dot, and connect it to the second to last dot, and so on. This creates a number of straight lines, which create an illusion of a curved line. Varying the angle between the lines, the number of lines in the design, and the overall arrangement, you get a design that is both geometric, but also has a natural, organic feel to it.
In this particular design, I used tens of baselines, resulting in hundreds of intersecting lines, and even more interactions between the lines. The final design looks like a spider web, and has plenty of focal points and interesting nooks.
