I haven’t bothered to scan this one, a photo’s way easier and since nobody’s gonna buy it anyway I don’t care. Have you priced an A3 scanner lately? The original’s on 14″×10″ smooth paper and I used a 0.5mm 2B and a 0.3mm HB automatic pencils. This has a mild bit of PS to bring out the colours that came from me having my finger over the flash and no retouching whatsoever. Its a pity the top left is illuminated a bit too much but I still don’t care.
Its a 10megapixel image.

This is about different levels of consciousness. To begin with this is all inside the mind, all imaginary so we’re already at one level of metaphysics. My subconscious is mostly out of bounds to me. Its represented here by the landscape. I often go there in dreams or whatever but can rarely remember anything that happened when I come back.
My immediate conscious is where I can go anytime I want and while I’m in there I can comtemplate, plan ways to think and construct concepts and regularly create models of problems I need to solve out here in the real world, connect them up to the mains and see if they work, or find out the probability of them working.
I only barely notice this process visually in pictures at the back of my mind and there are no words that can accurately describe it. Not yet anyway.
In addition to constructing problem models myself the problem plumbing can grow by itself, most of the time caused by bullshit from this world out here. This is called a neurosis. Neuroses can go unnoticed if the person who owns the brain isn’t careful, often manifesting itself as making him think things that aren’t true and thinking regressively or negatively. And if the person is that way inclined, being a dick.
Here, one of these has burst through the ceiling of the room it was in into the next level of consciousness and has encroached into my subconscious. This in time can affect the next level again, the soul.
The concept I’m trying to illustrate would be something like seeing wires and circuit boards on your monitor instead of software
2 days later and I have thought of a better way to think of this, lets say the flora represents my emotion, my passion and creativity and the mechanical stuff is the problems of daily life, job, money etc. Simple.

    Well Mr Yellow…I must tell you that your work is always so amazing to me and I always look foward to a new piece from you! Sometimes I wish I could see inside your mind! Its amazing!!!
    I would buy it! Just like this! Its perfect!

  • Thanks Casey, this was a real heartbreaker, I had to learn new stuff to complete it. I’ll be drawing more from insode my mind as it comes to me.

    Practically speaking, photographing can be better than scanning…like the shading you wouldn’t get with the scanner.
    People with brains must always be careful : don’t worry about it. One of these days you will connect with your unconscious and with you hadn’t.
    All makes sense to me, but then…., well, ahem….

  • Thank you. I’m very careful always and I’d glady visit the place for the good of my art. There are no formidable demons in there anymore.

    i like that your fields of imagination and dreams grow higher in places than your buildings of conscious and logic…….. great representational art simon…….. wonderful to see you post…………..b

  • Thanks Butch, you got it dude. Plants are far more intricate than machines and they rely more on harmony with their surroundings. It would never do to stick obtuse machines in the middle of an ecosystem. The machine layer is only as technologically advanced as I am but the next layer up requires the knowledge and intelligence of a deity.

    do you dream this stuff? seriously. do these images come to you when you sleep? like some wildly inventive mind tattoo, so wickedly cool it defies, reality, gravity, consciouness, and hell – even art itself!!

  • Feck! I hit the wrong button again. Thanks.

    BAM! There we go, your comments are why I put this stuff online. Thank you profusely Trace. I’m usually awake (I think) and the ideas can form over a week (or longer) I can wake up with them, but that’s rare and I have to be careful that I don’t use my own imagination to fill in any blanks, better to wait til the concept reveals itself from wherever it comes from and since it could be argued that I’m basically drawing myself all the time (or parts of myself) its probably coming from me in part. I dunno but a mind can be a universe within a universe, within a universe, why not? Within another universe…. blah blah blah. There’s something in quantum physics that touches on this. And I can pick and choose the laws of physics in the universe pictured above. Thanks again.

    great work, lovely tones

  • Thanks Antanas its actually one of the few that didn’t require darkening, I normally bring up the gamma correction on my pencil stuff.

    we are so opposites! and how great is that !! like Trace says, and they says and all, very quantum indeed :)

  • Aww thanks, you and her are absolute sweethearts. I’d like to know more about quantum physics than I do admittedly. Thank you so much.
