Whimsical modern illustrated manuscript with a philosophical bent. Disarming, very colorful illustrations have a folk art-ish, outsider arty quality. Generally the illustrations are mounted cut-outs, with color accenting to text done directly onto the pages. The text is done in what we presume is a deliberately child-like cursive, always easily legible, yet defiantly non-calligraphic. Meanwhile musical notation runs through the illustrations as an unifying motif. Closed, 43.5 by 21.5 cm. 8 panels (or pages). Extends to 210 cm. The text is a string of ideas that seem to hover between philosophical profundity and nonsense. There is an element of pseudo-science and an Eastern philosophy vibe, both of which are easy to digest and fun here, and together work wondrously with the illustrations. The creator uses acrylic inks and a ballpoint pen, as well as high quality drawing paper. He writes about this manuscript: "I reflect on conditions that strongly influence how I think about, and there experience, my world. ... [My] style of illustration and the concise, easy to understand text invite readers to approach my philosophically oriented themes with a light-hearted openness. In my experience, I've found that it is just such an attitude that best inspires personal growth." Drawing of a "cartoon" character mounted onto front cover.
