☼-TripTych.

4

🙂 Finished my TripTych measuring 370mm X 260mm on A3 paper. It took about 120 hours and I’m really proud of the end result and a little surprised. Some Solar system data, star correlations, ancient symbolism, megaliths, paranormal activity and some sacred building blocks. ❤

TRIPTYCH

Original available.

Passport to Hypnogogia.

Passport to Hypnogogia.

🙂 Working title “Passport to Hypnogogia”.

Spent the last 14 days working on this picture and I think I’ve pretty much finished it this morning. I may have said this before but this picture is now my favourite. I think because it incorporates many of my interests, experiences and even artistic ideas for fineliner shading that I’ve discovered over the last 3 years.

It’s 550mm X 340mm (Golden Rectangle) and sits nicely on A2 paper. ❤

I will scan the picture when I have a few pennies and post some better pics if anyones interested. I could also make some prints available too. I think I will do a picture with some explanations of the symbols too. The original is available.

Let me know what you think of it. Feedback is really important to me and can really change my direction when it comes to trying new pictures. 🙂

Symbolic Architecture: The Dolem.

Dolem.

This is my tribute to “Pi Day” symbolically represented by The Dolem. Another beautiful, ritually aligned, stone structure. It’s comprised of Dogon cosmological symbols I’m been playing with and really is just a doodle. Yes it’s a day late, Pi day was yesterday, but this is a very quiet website..I’m sure no one noticed. 🙂

Me at my local dolem “Kits Coty”, Kent, England.

Imagine if Universes are born in pairs.

C Doodling Dogon Style. Apparently Dogon cosmology says that Universes are born in pairs. One physical (hello!) and one none physical. So in ours we experience time and in theirs because they are infinitesimally small, do not experience time. They have perfect knowledge but no ability to create. Whereas we have the ability to create but imperfect knowledge. Such a cool concept. Ancient Dogon Cosmology and it’s better than our Science fiction. So it makes me wonder if all the various paranormal phenomena we experience are different kinds of interaction between a physical Universe and a non-physical Universes. Simple as that?

I also wonder if “the others” wear massive fedora hats and black capes. And all they can do is appear at the bottom of my bed and just stare.

Gulp.

Symbolic Architecture: The Stupa

Stupa.

🙂 Continuing my Symbolism and Cosmological studies, by which I mean diving into the work of Laird Scranton, I’ve spent the last couple of days working on this. It’s called a Stupa. A stone structure from India, an aligned ritual shrine and thousands of years old.

When I saw a picture of this Stupa in Sanchi for the first time recently, it really stopped me in my tracks.  So I thought I would draw it, so I would never forget it. It’s so perfect and beautiful and the oldest stone structure in India. ❤

The picture above is 2 days into the picture and then inverting it. The other is the completed picture which I finished yesterday. (On Laird Scrantons birthday no less! Coincidence? I. think. not.)

Even though I am using these pictures to help me understand and remember what I am learning if you would like to buy the original or a print of the completed picture you can. The support would be greatly appreciated not to mention desperately needed.

The Seven Stages of Po Pilu.

PoPilu1I get really inspired reading the works of Laird Scranton. I’m currently reading “The Cosmological Origins of Myth and Symbol”. These fineline drawings are a way for me to remember what I’m reading. 🙂

…the Dogon say that, conceptually, prior to existing as particles, matter exists as primordial threads being woven into matter, each thread passing through a series of 7 vibrations inside a tiny egg. The Po Pilu and it’s likely counterpart, the tiny, wrapped up bundles of seven dimensions in Torsion theory called Calabi-Yau Space.

Sacred Symbols.

Dimensions 560mm X 374mm.

Inspired and drawn whilst reading “Sacred Symbols of the Dogon” by Laird Scranton. This is a close up. Really tricky trying to photo the full picture and do the detail some justice. I’m working on it. 🙂

Finally saved a few pennies to buy “Sacred Symbols of the Dogon” by Laird Scranton. I could not be more happy!! 🙂

Here’s a really interesting interview with Laird a few weeks ago. ❤
