Hi there,

I really like this. I'm a writer, looking for a cover for a collection of poems and would like to use this. I'm a student, so unfortunately can't offer any payment, however you will be credit if you accept. You can contact me buddingauthor@tesco.net. Nice work.

An interesting proposition . . . do you have a link to the poems that you've created?

Greetings Lakandwa,

Thanks for your reply. I do have a kind of link, yes. Do you know of tumblr.com? I sometimes post poems on there. [link]
I'm a member of the Flashnificents, writers and poets. The link is a poem I did a while back, although not one which I wish to use in the published collection. In the one I'm publishing, I write about angels, bad/good times in my life, etc. [link] [link] I hope that helps but if not contact me again.

Thanks
K

I just sent you an email recently, as I had forgotten that I had contacted you already

So which artwork are you interested in using?

No worries -

I did the same. I love The Dance of Light, and those in the same style. The Birth of Consciousness - Enlightenment is lovely. [link] That series would be fantastic. What do they mean to you? [link]

Hello again,

Sorry for being so long out of touch. I was coming to the end of my degree and had much to write. I realise I haven't been on here in many months, neither have I checked e-mails. I do apologize.  I didn't get, My email went down. Please could you re-tell me?

This is so beautiful...something about the fact that is like a negative, the light on the dark background, makes everything seem to be made of light.

Thank you RZ

Most of my visionary work do almost appear as my drawings, these images come like flickers of light in the darkness . . . and this was based on a ritual dance I had my ex-wife perform one evening . . . is has a similar feel to your work "Pulse" and how light emanates from the darkness . . .

Greetings Cheyenne

My gratitude for your kind words.

And yes I have been compared to Mr Grey, even to have one student declare me as "the Alex Grey of the Philippines". It is quite a compliment, as I see we both tap into that universal consciousness and have chosen different media to express our visions

Salamat (thanks) at samuli (and until then),

Really a nice, joyous piece. It flows freely and lifts one's spirit to join the dance :)
I also love the starry night in the background.

Hi Veronika

This work was inspired by a trance dance / ritual I had my wife do, and the vision that ensued from that dance :)

Thanks
