drawings from the "Barachiel" sketchbook 03/04






















There wasn't many notes in this sketchbook. I was still in school, my friend was making a 3-D movie about the Egyptian after-life and he asked me to come up with concepts for it- nothing came out of it, except for a couple of drawings. I also had an intrest in Tribalism. I spent countless hours in the MET looking at the African art. The rest of the drawings were used for illustrations and other projects. I know that the drawings are crude, but the ideas are still usable. And after all, doesn't it all start with an idea? At the back of the sketch book, I saw a list I wrote of the CDs I was listening to then (even though I remembered immediately).
- David Bowie- Earthling
- NIN- Spiral Down
- David Bowie- Low
- Depeche Mode- Songs of Faith and Devotion
- Kraftwerk- Computer Love
- Brian Ferry- Mamouna

Your creations are intiguing. I'd argue that there're not "crude." However, I'm not able to draw much beyond stick figures. I'm not trying to blow smoke up your ass, but I find your art to be absolutely amazing.

Take care,

"jumping spiders"

I looked up "encolpius." What I found stated that encolpius was some fancy word for jumping spider.

Regardless, you have some amazing shit, words and images.

Take care,
