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).

Art created from ‘The Golden Ratio Colouring Book’

These are some of the artworks I have produced so far from ‘The Golden Ratio Colouring Book’. When I was producing the images for the book (seems like a long time ago now) it was so hard not to start shading them in, so now I get to make some of my favourites shine!

Galactic.

In my mind this one above is a Galaxy where every living, life-giving, Sun within it, is connected and conscious and able to communicate with one another at the speed of light, just happy to warm any passing rock that should come their way.

‘Wrapped around and within’.

“The study of geometry is a meditation on the harmony of the cosmic order, and it is a meditation upon music. If you meditate upon geometry instead of just learning it in a linear way, you can actually hear the music of the spheres, because the geometric forms will key the eye and the ear to the inner sound. Every line that you draw,…you have the carryover from the spiritual octaves to the physical …. So geometry, and mathematics and calculus, make the transition from the concrete to the non-concrete. It is one of the highest studies that anyone can pursue.” ..Elizabeth Clare Prophet

If you would like to buy a copy of the colouring book here are your amazon links. 🙂  U.S.edition / U.K. edition. Thankyou to everyone at Michael O’Mara books for making it happen!

I hope you like my efforts so far. 6 down about 74 to go! I share my work online in the hope you like it enough to share with others. Please do! It really does make all the difference.

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.

The Hatman…Updated.

hatman mid.jpg

I’ve been meaning to draw this exact picture for a couple of years now. Seeing how I am stuck in bed recuperating from an operation, I thought I would get it out of my head.

Update: So I’ve finished the picture above, it was worthy of finishing. The black and white space spiralling around the border symbolises the concept of twin universes, (universes being born in pairs) one physical, the other non physical, wrapped around and within one another. The ancient symbols at the top centre represent a possible way of communication between a material and non material universes. The dots and dashes behind them showing that information is being transmitted , not just pretty symbols. The Symbols bottom centre are Egyptian hieroglyphics for the word “hept”, which means ‘to embrace’. A square and a hemi sphere surrounded by a pair of outstretched arms. But symbolically read can mean the embrace of the physical and non physical. The corner stones again are Egyptian symbols for wind-fire-earth and water through which a material universe emerges.

So the reason I connected the Hatman to this ancient concept is only because I don’t know not what was standing in my room that time. Perhaps these non physical beings come from a non physical universe wrapped all around and within us. 

I saw it once standing at the bottom of my bed. Read more…
