ABOUT THE JERUSALEM SERIES:
As I get older, the idea of “God” gets more real to me.
As I get older, God feels to me less like a grey-bearded sky fairy, or Indian dude with an elephant’s head, but more akin to something aligned with the laws of physics. Imagine, if you will, a “UFC” i.e. a universal field of consciousness, one that permeates every inch of the universe, one that all mortal beings are somehow connected to.
As I get older, the more my drawings connect with this idea.
Over time, all this became The Jerusalem Series. “Sheets of contemplation”, as it were. A spiritual exercise, a “Zen” exercise, an exercise in contemplation, more than anything else.
I chose the name, “Jerusalem” because I love the idea of there being a truly Holy place, somewhere closer to God than anywhere else. Hopefully though art, we can all create that same place in our own head. Fans of William Blake will know what I’m talking about.
ABOUT “THE SCOTTISH PROJECT“
I often send out hand-drawn postcards to my old friends in Scotland, where I grew up. Over time I have also included non-Scots in the mix, but I kept the original name, “The Scottish Project”. The archive is here.
