Foibles of the Judge Called Jury

I'm pretty sure I saw this as a drawing somewhere, well, actually not so sure. However, the image seems to pop up in my memories from Monty Python skits, Star Trek TNG scenes with Q, and strange Kafka-esque gothic films from the 1960s and 1970s. It's all from that mess of what an old friend … Continue reading Foibles of the Judge Called Jury

Secret Memory Box #6 – Segmented Brains

I had more fun than I thought I would making pinch-pot spheres. it has been years since I made pinch-pots and I don't remember enjoying it. my mentor showed me a new way of doing it and explained how zen it was. Maybe it's because I'm older now, but I finally got it. Moreover, I … Continue reading Secret Memory Box #6 – Segmented Brains

Secret Memory Box #5a – Letting Them Go

Back to my fluted faces, filled with joy and music. These are repositories of happiness and perhaps I have not let that go into the universe enough. I love these figures and have the devil of a time explaining why to others. Maybe I just did: they are full of happiness, but also sadness at … Continue reading Secret Memory Box #5a – Letting Them Go

Study Of A Sky Spirit

Inspired more from one of the stories from the Hopi, but also from descriptions of the Manitou. The funny thing is I found this curious book and the back cover said it was written from the perspective of a crow and I'm sure that's part of this too. All these creatures come from an amalgamation … Continue reading Study Of A Sky Spirit

Study Of A Mountain Spirit

I got inspired by one of many descriptions I’ve read of the Manitou according to the Ojibwe people combined with various Japanese forest creatures. The strange figure rises out of the dead tree stump and remains part of it. It is ready to wander the world. Perhaps looking for those who harm the earth. The … Continue reading Study Of A Mountain Spirit

Study Of A Forest Spirit

I can easily say the only thing original about this might be my simplified style of it. I have filled my imagination with images of tree beings and forest spirits from endless books, movies, and illustrations. They aren't always female and I'm not sure this one is meant to be fully female either. It is … Continue reading Study Of A Forest Spirit

Goya Squares Project: Nobody Lies Here – Unknown in Live and Death

So, I felt I wasn't quite finished with these Goya squares (I'm still unsure if I am) and had this one leftover that had a foot and bit of an arm on it. in my imagination, it turned into a pair of fish. Then there was one that contained a bit of a face, the … Continue reading Goya Squares Project: Nobody Lies Here – Unknown in Live and Death

Goya Squares Project: Imagining Space in 1950

Following the Beelzebub & Bob drawing, the teacher suggested I try again, only this time with only one of the Goya squares. So I did. I now had a couple of Pixma fine point pens to work with, instead of that silly metal nib and inkwell. I stared at the Goya square. I stared at … Continue reading Goya Squares Project: Imagining Space in 1950

Vibrant Galaxies

A different perspective on the Tethered Biospheres photo. Perhaps I've been watching too much Star Trek lately, but it does look like those galaxies they are always encountering. The mysterious nebulas. I simply hyper saturated the colours and the extra luminescence appeared. My imaginations flew me through this wonderful vision of outer space. For more … Continue reading Vibrant Galaxies

Tethered Biospheres

Can you picture a futuristic cityscape, where the communities are vast biospheres floating in the sky and tethered to the earth? That's what I saw when I crouched down into the buggy grasses and looked across this field. Perhaps these are the skeletal remains of one off these fantasy world-scapes. For more of my photo … Continue reading Tethered Biospheres
