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

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.

Dodgy ‘Cold Tea’ Tea Towel & Print

Posted on February 1, 2013

To Celebrate 20 years since the release of ‘the Dodgy Album’

Dodgy ‘Cold Tea’ Tea Towel

‘Cold Tea’ The Dodgy Album Print

Be careful where you tread
You don’t want to do any harm
And you don’t have to have a reason
To do what you do when you do it
When you don’t want to be all alone
You can turn to me ‘cos it’s easy
There’s nothing worse than cold tea

You say it’s in the wrist
It’s in the rhythm of your palm
You life’s and open field
And you can run, run till you drop
To lie in long grass
Or between the sheets that you brought along
We forget the pot that was hot before it got cold

Make your mark and hope it works ‘cos there’s more to life to see
Make your mark, make it loud and clear, ‘cos there’s more to life with me

Give you an inch and you’ll walk with a smile
Give me a slice and I’ll be quiet for a while
You’ve got to grow with what you believe, believe
