|Obelix Havasupai Closeup|
The symbols used in this one are geologic, stone, earth-like. A cube shape has been haunting me so I built one from the symbols themselves. Could be a 3-dimensional sentence. Could be a set of dice. Could be keys turned to access another realm. I want to explore this concept further. I keep tuning into an "Ancient Future" feeling that has a lot of juice and I'm scurrying down the rabbit hole after it.
I worked from a photo I took while riding a helicopter out of Havasu Falls, a tributary of the Grand Canyon. All the inking is done with a Crow Quill and india ink. I listened to "Kafkaesque", an hour-long ambient drone piece of music by Australian artist "Soul in limbo" over and over again while working on it. So, I guess that might be the soundtrack.
