2008-.1 THE SEED IS PLANTED
Inspired by my friend's desire to color my drawings, an idea had begun to move within me. Coloring books...I could make my art into coloring books! Better yet, I could help different artists turn their work into coloring books, as well!
In excitedly sharing my new ideas with friends, one of them, a local artist girl (Kat Maddock), wasted no time! In January 2008, spontaneously she brought me a drawing for the coloring book I had been talking about.
Sudden insight granted a boon to the project: the drawings could all connect, making a larger image! So I gave her drawing to four artists around town, asking each one to go off of a different edge of the drawing.
While waiting the rest of the year on those first pieces, The concept had grown even grander. Enter: The Zodiac Puzzle .
Like a game of human sudoku, I needed to get a male and female of each zodiac sign connected in each book. This would bring energetic balance & allow the creation of a divine composition.
Divine composition- allowing Divine forces compose the greater image
(so what we all make is in the image of the Divine, not man)
Trusting Synchronicity, where puzzle pieces fit in the overall image was predetermined when I met someone, instead of myself making a Decision.
For example, I needed a female Taurus to help finish the first panel of 12 pieces. I saw a girl, chalk drawing on the River wall in Cape Girardeau Missouri, by the Mississippi river! She was in the zone so we left her to it.
As we were leaving she asked us the date, to sign her drawing, and we started talking! After describing the project we found she was the girl I was looking for! She drew the picture below:
