Summary

VOYAGER ILLUSTRATION

Voyager means traveler of time and space. As a voyager the art I create represents the journey of my soul. Each Illustration has for its porpuse the attaiment of a higher level of perception. Its real significance lies in the philosophy of life it displays. As a visual methaphysic, it is a synthesis of the external and internal worlds that unify into one, the link between human and cosmos. Voyager Illustrations intent to become a visual aid for self enlightment and works as a reminder to find the basic element in thenhuman heart, the spirit, the divine spark.
