Encirclopedia.

Inspired by this plate which my mum had made to celebrate my birth, I was fascinated that you could include information in artwork. So when I realized I could draw I decided to evolve the idea a little and create some personalized artwork.

ENC 6 COSMIC 2015 hi

These particular Encirclopedias deal with your place in this Universe and the cycles within it when you emerged here. The information shown could be literal, symbolic or even coded within the picture. I don’t necessarily want the information to be too obvious but to someone in the know (you) it will speak volumes. The above Encirclopedia includes:

Name
Birthday
Time of Birth
Place of Birth
Sex
Weight
Planet of Origin.
Solar System
Zodiac Sign
Chinese Sign
Elemental Sign
Rising sign
Ruling Planet
Place in the Yuga Cycle
Among other symbolic information.

Every time I’m commissioned to do one, the design evolves a little. There are 2 versions. A 200mm on A3 paper and a 300mm on A2 paper.

300mm-encirclopedia

 It’s entirely up-to you how much or little information you would like presented. Including hidden messages. It’s no problem if for example you don’t know your weight at birth or time. As I draw each one from a blank piece of paper I can be flexible concerning what info goes into the picture.

Each design is unique although you have a good idea of what it will look like from my previous encirclopedia.  A 200mm X 200mm Encirclopedia can be completed and dispatched within a week. (A 300mm X 300mm about 2 weeks).

An experimental 380mm Solar System Encirclopedia. My compass is pushed to the max.

This is the latest 300MM Encirclopedia finished this week. (June 2017).

And this is the one I am currently working on. A 300MM encirclopedia set with a 485MM Golden rectangle.

If you like to commission one please get in touch.

Glyphics.

Desk.Desk tidied, my mind turned to Egyptian glyphs this last week.

I watched this video about 4 years ago. This was the first meeting and interview between John Anthon West and Laird Scranton. It’s so fortunate that this moment was captured on film. It’s such a meaningful conversation.

‘Phi’ Francisco’s commission.

phi

Recently finished commission for Francisco. ‘Phi’ measuring 374mm X 230mm. Started in September 2016 and finished October 27 2016.

The whole image is a golden rectangle. The main rectangle in the middle is also golden as are the two connecting rectangles at 12 o’clock and 6 oclock. I arranged the Fibonacci spiral the way it is as to me it always resembles a feminine face looking back at the viewer. If you notice the little teeth/cogs on the spiral as it goes into the centre, this also adds to the feminine energy giving it the effect of eyelashes.
The spiral actually goes into the centre of the Orion nebula in the space I have created which is where our sun was born. There is a real but almost invisible spiral of gas that comes from this region called ‘barnards loop’ which spirals out to the stars that were created in this region of space.
The background to the region of space within the centre rectangle (the dots and dashes) could on one level represent the digital nature behind reality or all the information within it.
 I have 24 suns/seeds of life, all uniquely decorated, around the border to represent on one level the cycle of a day.(24hrs). On another level the ancient yuga cycle of higher and lower ages every 24,000 years. The top and bottom golden rectangles are decorated with the Sun/PHI symbols. The Yuga cycle is also incorporated into the shading of the lower Sun. I left the upper sun shaded as it is to represent a golden age. The corner stones of the picture are megalithic blocks making up the Fibonacci progressions.

Space. Gabrielles commission.

🙂 Recently finished this commission (for Gabrielle). Measuring 360mm X 240mm on A3 paper. Completed from July to August, this is what 100 hours of drawing space looks like!

Zep Tepi tower.

This picture goes into the “Zep Tepi” series. An Ancient/futuristic megalithic highrise. Completed on July 1st 2016, drawn on 250 gsm extra smooth Bristol board. 🙂 ❤

🙂 Finished this today. Measuring  256mm X 185mm on A4 (250gsm), extra smooth, Bristol board. ❤ It started off as a platonic totem pole but I couldn’t leave it alone. So then it started feeling like I was drawing some exotic spaceship. And now the creative process is complete it looks like a pharaonic, platonic, Chewbacca. 😃
