I continue to be in awe when I think about your connection to the higher parts of your consciousness and your ability to translate your dreams and visions (4D) and put them down on to a 2 dimensional surface. Your use of symbolism in your artwork, I think aids the viewer in having a somewhat better understanding of your visions and what they might mean to ourselves and our connection to everything in the universe. I don't know if that makes any sense or not.

Thank you Baron

Yes you are making sense . . . Yes I have studied symbols for almost 40 years until I realized the universality of it all. In truth it isn't always easy staying in-synch with the universe while living in the day-to-day. At times they just flash at the oddest times (my wife complained of how many nights I have not been beside her in bed) . . . still I do have to share these because many of the message are never for me

Thank you for your kind words my friend

And about your question . . . there are several ways to answer this query:

1) I always do rough pencil sketches on the black surface, using a B lead which can be very easy to see against the dark back ground. I use a ruler, compass and protractor to mark down the basic geometric shapes. But after all the basic format is penciled, the all the details are just inked free-hand, including the straight lines

2) Some of my works come from dream and meditative visions . . . but these images are 4D, so I sometimes have to make sketches to try to capture the essence of the visions. . . or sometimes I just draw it straight on the black background

3) I usually start from the center and move outwards, and in this case it was the eyes
