Something I started doing about 10 years ago was creating what I call Neo-Mandala Art. While my images are not exactly spiritual in nature they are inspired by the long history Mandala art. My Neo-Mandalas are far from minimal in their design. However, while I make them they quiet my thoughts. So in some ways there is a bit of a spiritual element in my whimsical discoid images. Over the last 10 years I have created 1000's of individual elements that were used in creating my digital works. I save them in a very large library of shapes. It is like a toy box filled with things to play with. I sort through all these items and begin to put them to
I explore a place where surrealism, psychedelia, and dreams meet. It is not always easy to find. However, once you get there it is hard to leave. Some people might get frighten when they are there. Dream explorers love this magical place where imagination reveals itself. Don't be afraid of what you might find on your journey there. It might just feel like home.
I have always been interested in vintage images of all sorts. I would spend hours looking through the old faded and yellowed photographs of my grandmother's photo box and old magazines. For a few years now have been going on journeys to all corners of the universe and visiting such amazing places. It seem some of my recent work has been combining these things. I would not exactly call the work vintage but they evoke some of those feelings in me. I have been on real life journeys all over the globe. I have traveled to the corners of the universe with the help of my vivid imagination and dreaming. I have traveled back into time through the imag
Well just another rainy day, it is cold, wet, and the colors outside are drab. I think I need to go on a picnic of the imagination. The meadow of psychedelic dreams awaits. I will need some sandwiches!
Take a walk with me into that time just before awakening but still in a dream. This is the time that dreams become reality and reality is questioned. I know it will be a good day when the forecast is for plenty of surrealism. You never know what amazing sights you will encounter. Lets take a walk, a dive, or a flight on this surreal day.
Surreal : marked by the intense irrational reality of a dream; also : unbelievable, fantastic
I have traveled all over this universe and seen things that are beyond reason. The journey never ends because the curiosity never ends. Let your curiosity take control and come along for a ride to the other side of reason.
The journey never ends when your destination is the other side of reason.
I need all your help. Some of you know the events of the last couple months have been rough for me. The main event was my emergency surgery followed by a few other financial disasters that happened all at once. Heat pumps are expensive. The result is well over $55,000.00 of expenses, this is overwhelming me. My contract at work was not renewed so I lost my job and have been living on meager art sales and savings for a long time now. The timing of all this could not be worst. While all this is going on I continue struggling with getting my health back. I will get past this! I created Curioos / Society6 shops for a variety of my work. This is
These images are the industry, machines, and destruction that intergalactic war will bring. A lot of these images are inspired by early science fiction movies like War of the Worlds and The Day The Earth Stood Still. I loved these movies as a kid and still do.
In my travels around the universe I have found the darker corners. Not all the universe is filled with color and light. Some of the darker corners are barren but others are filled with life. Some will even surprise you with their struggle for color and light in the darkness.
Just a quick entry to let you all know where I have been. About 3 weeks ago I had to go to the hospital for kidney stone. There was a lot of pain put they passed. A few days later I had a fever and was in a lot of pain and totally different issue. I had to go back to the hospital. They told me I needed emergency surgery and it would not be easy. It wasn't but they saved my life. To finish all this off my gentle soul Rameses the most loving animal anyone could have in their life passed away Monday morning. I have been in a very dark place for weeks but time to see some color again. Yesterday was the first day of summer and the first day I coul
“I believe in the future resolution of these two states, dream and reality, which are seemingly so contradictory, into a kind of absolute reality, a surreality, if one may so speak.”
― André Breton, Manifestoes of Surrealism
My journeys through the universe have taken me to some amazing places. I have been witness to some incredible sights in the distant reaches of the galaxy. I always know where my towel is. Grab your towel and come along on an adventure of a life time.
