I was asked to create a Rubber Stamp Hang Tag for Cro’Shea, a knitting company creating headwear for ski and snow. The emphasis was on Handcrafted, and what says Handcrafted better than a Rubber Stamp hang tag.

Circle Magick – The Flower of Life

Posted on September 5, 2013 

I have been creating patterns utilising the tessellating nature and rotation of circles.

The geometric figure of a tube torus represented by the Seed of Life.

A basic one dimensional depiction of the Tube Torus shape is formed by ratching the Seed of Life and duplicating the lines of the tube torus in its design. Some say the Tube Torus contains a code of vortex energy that describes light and language in a unique way, perhaps as something of an Akashic Record.

The Seed/Flower of Life

The Flower of Life is a name for a geometrical figure composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles. This figure, used as a decorative motif since ancient times, forms a flower-like pattern with the symmetrical structure of a hexagon.

A “Flower of Life” figure consists of seven or more overlapping circles, in which the center of each circle is on the circumference of up to six surrounding circles of the same diameter. However, the surrounding circles need not be clearly or completely drawn; in fact, some ancient symbols that are claimed as examples of the Flower of Life contain only a single circle or hexagon.

Figures as prominent as Leonardo da Vinci are said to have ascribed significance to the Flower of Life and three similar symbols, called the “Egg of Life,” the “Fruit of Life,” the “Seed of Life”. Drunvalo Melchizedek, an author from the New Age movement, has called these figures symbols of sacred geometry, asserting that they represent ancient spiritual beliefs, and that they depict fundamental aspects of space and time. Melchizedek claims that Metatron’s Cube may be derived from the Flower of Life pattern, and that the Platonic solids within it were “thought to act as a template from which all life springs.”

The Flower of Life and the Seed of Life are linked by New Age authors with the Biblical prophet Enoch, the Archangel Metatron, the six days of Creation, the Vesica Piscis religious symbol, and Borromean rings. Extract from Wikipedia

Colourised Dodgy photo

Here is a great collection of Historical Colourised photos. For a recent commission I thought I would have a go, as the original colour photo could not be found. Very happy with the result, a great tutorial for the set up of colourisation by Zuzahen can be found here.

Portsea Island – Bored of Southsea

Posted on July 29, 2013 

Celebrating the ‘Portsea Island’ Grow A Brain has produced this Hawaiian island inspired design, available now from BORED OF SOUTHSEA in 2 colour tee and hoody.

For those of you that live further afield from our City you may not know that the City of Portsmouth is prominently based on an Island called ‘Portsea Island’ and is the only ‘Island City’ within the United Kingdom.

This design is a tongue in cheek play between us here living on Portsea and also an Island somewhere a lot, lot closer to the equator such as the Islands of Hawaii with the design incorporating palm tree’s and tropical flowers conjuring up far warmer climates than we experience here, look and you’ll notice the silhouette of Portsea has been included as a nod to our home.

Shout to our man Russell Hardman aka Grow a Brain for working with us on this we hope that you enjoy.
Model: Jen Vidler

The Flaming Lips YES! ‘The Terror’ Tee

Posted on May 31, 2013 

This design was based on the FLIPS motifs; Rainbows, lasers, skulls, fetuses, mirrorball’s, flying eyes, UFO’s, giant hands, peace signs, glitter nails… and Wayne Coyne’s drawings of fertile women. It is a visual homage to British psychedelic art, namely Alan Aldridge and Terry Gilliam of Flying Circus fame. All the type was hand rendered including the umbilical cord terror text.
