In connection with the Greek Mythology Reading Cards project, I will be in live conversation on Transformation Talk Radio with the host Dr Pat and Alison Chester Lambert this coming Monday. I am very much looking forward to that. Here’s a link for that show which will also be available to listen later and as a podcast…
The live show is scheduled for 10 am Seattle time , 6pm UK time and midnight Bangkok time on Monday 14th May 2018.
Check out this great video on youtube of the cards:-
This is quite a diversion from my normal activity…a golf scoring mobile application. All the design, photography and concept is mine of course, but I have had the great pleasure to have worked with Loichai studio who have made this dream a reality for me.
I started playing golf just over two years ago and looked for a scoring application to record my results. The ones I found were not what I wanted so I started to record them in my own unique way on a sheet of radial or polar graph paper my father had given me when I was young.
The idea is that the centre of the wheel is a par score of 72 and the outer edge is set at 120. Every time you play you add another point to the curve in a clockwise direction. Ideally, as your scores come down you will create a ‘spiral of improvement’ and eventually hit the centre. I found this visual idea to be such a great incentive to get out and play, that I decided to create it as a mobile application so beginners like me, as well as more established golfers, could do the same.
It has come a long way from my original graph and now looks like this:-
As you add your own courses to the list you colour code them so you can also see progress on those individual courses as well :-
All the information is fully editable so you can add all your past scoring history, add photos, notes and maybe even excuses!
I was very kindly asked to join in on the Cosmic Consciousness show on Kcorradio.com by Trisha Gelder – Spiritual Numerologist, who has enjoyed using my oracle cards in her work. There’s almost an hour of chat talking around my career as an artist if you are interested. You can find the link here.
Here’s a new project in progress…a hand carved inscription on an old wooden stool. Lettering designed with double pencils on paper and written quickly and arranged in a simple block layout. It is such a joy to work in wood. The crisp crunch of a sharp chisel cutting through the grain a most satisfyimg sound.
“Truth is ever to be found in Simplicity” ( not in the multiplicity and confusion of things ) … Isaac Newton
I love the simple utilitarian nature of the stool. It just came to hand as a pleasing idea to add some calligraphy to it.
