Some drawing are like a quick but tasty snack this is a veritable cornucopia of delight, every time I look anew I find something mind catching and beautifully delineated. Superb draftsmanship coupled with an amazing array of interesting detail to derail the thoughts and send my mind off at a tangent. Love your work Mr Mystic, superb stuff.

Thank you very much! My inspiration comes from many sources - in this drawing here I have to say my friends Peter Gric [link] and (early works of) DeEs Schwertberger [link] also a bit of Escher [link] and Oscar Reutersvard [link]

there is many in it to look at and discover the infinite of thoughts. It is a very inspiring piece of art. The idea with the Thet in the middle is good. first i didn't realizes it as some important part of the picture even the contrast to the background is ther maybe the highest in the picture. Maybe it is that I can't recognize it exactly as Hebrew letter, but i wondered if it could be one or if it was an "just a thing". How you think about the idea to give the letter some "glow" around it for make it look more divine? But surely it isn't an option to change the art now, just as an idea.

I make it easy: in the center of the impossible cube (and triangle), there is the hebrew letter Thet, which symbolises the womb, but in numerical value is Nr. 9, which in turn is the number for divinity. From there, it's anybodies trip.....

It's a trip into the unknown, my friend! If I would set out knowing what I am doing, it would drive me mad! It takes a lot of time, but every moment is an enjoyable adventure.
