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.
Looking back, for all the countless hours spent drawing , it seems to me that the best thing to come out of it was the fact that a good many of those hours were spent bringing my mind to a meditative state, a Zen state, in the zone, a mindful state, closer to the Lord, call it what you will. For that, I am truly grateful.
