Shining brightly.

” Shining brightly”. A tribute to Una Odonohue. Another mum lost but never forgotten. ❤ For Gene, Ann, Maise, Sharon, Karl, Eileen.

The sacred geometry, the symbolism and the synchronicity are all there for those who can see it.

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).

A Cosmic Trip.

🙂 These are my efforts this week. After finishing my most ambitious picture “Passport to Hypnogogia” last friday, it didn’t take 30 minutes before my mind wandered to what I could draw next. I want to try a small triptych as the symbolism of 3’s is throughout my work so seems a natural step, I’ll probably do an A3 one first and then an A2…will keep you posted! ❤

Any support would be much appreciated and desperately needed.  🙂 My Art for Sale.

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. 🙂

New Artwork finished.

C4-hi🙂 Finished this picture last night. It’s my largest to date at 570mm X 400mm, about as large as you can get on A2 paper. I’ve been working on it on and off for about 10 days, although the center piece was originally a picture on it’s own until I decided to evolve it a little further. Any feedback or title suggestions always welcome.

Some originals and prints available here. ❤
