a trampoline ~
is up to you:::
deep in trance ~
a steady breath,
a leap of faith,
the slate wiped clean ~
a long lost land,
an ocean blue,
a forest green.
Seek the seekers,
change the view,
wake the sleepers
with eyes renewed.
this static shape
take your hand
and grab a friend ~
take the other
and grab the crew ~
we’re here to heal,
to learn, to feel:::
Connect the dots
and flip the page,
shake off the spots
and jump on stage:::

Coined by Benoit Mandelbroit in 1975, the term fractal was derived from the Latin fractus meaning 'broken' or 'fractured.'
The fundamental characteristicof fractals is that their structure repeats in a very self-similar fashion at any level of magnification. This can be found in clouds, coastlines, mountain ranges and lightning bolts, as well as various vegetables and animal coloration patterns.
The Wikipedia page on the Mandelbrot set is densely packed with equations, but if you scroll down about halfway there's a beautiful 14 step slideshow of some high res fractal images.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandelbrot_set
This one is the 8th in the series...Illustrated below are 10 simple fractal progressions:::

The most current version contains 161.
For a closer look to see the words I've used, here are some details of the head, hands, torso and legs.
I've also created a color version and have included the seven chakra system. Printed an earlier version at nearly life size (6' x 4') on a vinyl sheet and it looks absolutely stunning. I'm hoping to print it to fit the side of a building someday...

Will be posting some color versions in the near future...
I’m currently printing Suggesdala posters and t-shirts and am undergoing plans to extend into a whole line of products. Also open to commissions for personalized Suggesdalas and you can have a name, affirmation, quote, poem or song customized into any language. Pricing differs based on word count and print size.

Stippled in my sketchbook and manipulated digitally, I inverted the tones to give the appearance of stars. This piece represents an evolution of mankind from terrestrial dweller to galactic being.
Linked umbilically, fetal fractals bloom from their foreheads in accordance with the Fibonacci sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8). An unfolding act of co-creation echoing throughout space and time.

This piece is my tribute to Demeter. In Greek mythology she was the most generous of the great Olympian goddesses. Beloved for her service to mankind, she gave the gift of the harvest as reward for cultivation of the soil. Also known as the Roman goddess Ceres, Demeter was credited with teaching humans how to grow, preserve, and prepare grain.
She was the only Greek goddess involved on a day-to-day basis in the lives of the common folk. While others occasionally "dabbled" in human affairs when it suited their personal interests, or came to the aid of "special" mortals they favored, Demeter was truly the nurturer of mankind.
Demeter was also the only Greek goddess who could truly empathize with the human experience of suffering and grief, having experienced it fully herself.
Seen here, she is dancing over a newly seeded crop, bestowing the land with fertility for a bountiful harvest.
