Once upon a time, long long ago, I did a lot of drawings that were cut into irregular shapes.The black outline you see above runs parallel to the cut edges of the paper. It was drawn with markers during the bicentennial year of 1976--31 years ago and a good four years before the Beanworld we all share today sprang into existence.
I see lots of foreshadowing of aesthetic decisions I made in the '80s. Although I expect that this drawing reflects some sort of pondering of the Tree of Knowledge or Apollo, the python and the laurel tree of the Oracle of Delphi.
This drawing caught my attention because it clearly shows my mind drifting towards the concept of Gran'Ma'Pa.
The sleeping critter in the foreground is based upon my cat--the original Mr Spook.
