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).

OUTER SPACE mid

New artwork finished a few days ago. I think it’s taken over a week to do. I just wondered what it would look like. And now I know! I think of these pictures as creative exercises, I love the chance to have to create something different, new space, every time and see ideas evolve. Hopefully they turn into nice pieces of art. Measuring 230mm X 230mm on A3, 200gsm paper.

If you like my work please pass it on. 🙂 ❤

Finished this picture last night,measuring 240mm X 240mm on A3 200gsm paper. I am so happy with it. I started it on 13th March and it comes at the end of drawing 10 monoliths in a row. So this isn’t a monolith, but it does satisfy some desire/obsession I have with black cubes. I have no idea what this means. I think I’ve wanted to draw this picture for some time. I will make the original available in my store should someone fall in love with it. And if anyone would like to use the image in a publication please get in touch.
