‘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.

🙂 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. 😃

FANTASY BOOK COVER #1 HI MASTER

Thought I would design an imaginary book cover. Something to do. 🙂

The birth of twin Universes.

EMBRACE1

Embrace: In the centre of the picture is a Universal egg with twin Universes wrapped around and within each other. One physical the other non physical. The Fibonacci panels left and right show the birth of these Universes and the symbols are ancient Dogon, used to explain simple ideas (!) like the creation of the Universe, reproduction and the creation of matter.

Original and prints available.

That’s my hard work this week. I love the new style my work has evolved into. I think my last picture/post (TripTych) shows how it changed mid-picture.

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. 🙂
