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.

#060: walking around the west village

Postcard sent to Beth Maudlin of Texas, one of my Twitter buddies.

A few days ago, I tweeted out, “The first person to email me wins this original drawing” etc, Beth was the first one to reply. [NB- the tweet has since been deleted].

About the drawing: This time, back in New York City’s West Village in December, 1998, I was shopping for Christmas presents in the snow. It was was one of those moments when life seemed absolutely perfect. Everything was alright in the universe. Those moments had become increasingly non-existent ever since leaving college, it was nice to be back in the flow again.
