In 2009, I created The StressFish for a website which was to give people quick anti-stress tips and modern energy based stress information. As is so often the case, the StressFish was years ahead of its time. Things happened, until in 2015 the stress challenge was approached anew with the GoE's MODERN Stress Management programs. In 2016, The StressFish retired (as he was cured of stress and now swims in a life of success!) and the articles transferred to GoE.ac. Still, The StressFish was good fun and much loved, so here is ...

So Boaty McBoatface is "serious science" - fair enough so. But it got immense publicity, and now, here's an opportunity - if folk can get their heads out of their ... ahm ... "serious science."
As someone commented, children would love this. I say the Adventures of Boaty McBoatface would make a fortune in movie rights, merchandising and delight an entire generation of kids and beyond. You could build another 500 ships with the money you could earn from this. Well, here's my Boaty McBoatface - BEFORE they can throw the copyright book at me! Enjoy :-)
Oceans of Energy is coming back - the next edition of the book on EMO Energy in Motion will return to the original title of the first edition.
And we needed a new Ocean Wave. Here it is!
Art poems - instead of drawing the pictures, I wrote the words that say more than a dozen pictures :-) one night.
Enjoy Art Poems - Gifts & Surprises.
The "Celebration" design for the 10th Anniversary EMO Conference.
EMO is an amazing modality; indeed there would be no 1-art.eu website without it.
For ten years, EMO has been flying under the radar, being used as a modern research tool which has already brought about massive changes - well, we might as well call them what they are, a real paradigm shift in the theory and practice of modern energy work.
So the theme was, "It's time to let the genie out of the bottle!"
One of the most fascinating things I've learned about art is that art doesn't get better when the artist gets older. Any inspired work of art can't be bettered; it's perfect as it is and can't be improved upon. It's not a curve from being useless to getting good then great; real art doesn't work that way.
Which has many repercussions across time and space for the development of the artist.
The five petalled rose is a mystical super-symbol that turns up in just about every major esoteric mythology.
The rose is found in Christian symbology but also in many other places, including as the heraldic emblem of the place where I was born. Here is my version of the mystical White Rose in png.
Interesting challenge - to illustrate the concept of isolation.
I took it a bit further to have the answer to how to get out of isolation and/or feeling isolated in the little cartoon as well. See what you think ...
Whilst doing work on the transfer of my magic site, I came across this picture for the front cover of the soul pilots book.
This was really one of those things. It is challenging to make things simple, childish, childlike and have the guts to stay with that. The Soul Pilot is a really childish, simple line drawing and yet it is perhaps the only one of all the works of art I've done that has the power to move me to tears when I tune into it.
Lucky Hans, or Hans Im Glück as the Germans say, is an archetype that relates to the Fool in the Tarot card.
Lucky Hans strides out with a bundle on his stick, to find his fortune, make his luck, free from all worry, fear and responsibility, enjoying life to the full.
I was looking for the very iconic image of Lucky Hans this morning and couldn't find anything I liked so I decided to make my own Hans im Glück picture instead.
This illustration called "Open Your Mind" was created to accompany the article "Project Sanctuary In A Nutshell."
The physical brain is one thing, but the human mind is another, altogether :-)
