WHAT IS A CATHEDRAL?

Since 1997 I’ve drawn thousands of “Hughcards” [cartoons drawn on the backs of business card], just to give me something to do while sitting at the bar. Over time they have become increasingly religious and or meditative, over time they became ‘Cathedrals’.

(What is a “Cathedral”?)

A “Cathedral” is a series of x-hundred smaller, business-card”Hughcard” drawings (number per piece varies), forming a single piece under a single pane of glass. The pieces are designed to generate a state of “creative contemplation” in the viewer.

“Cathedral” is a metaphor for a Holy Place, where the spirit goes to be amplified through contemplation.
