Definition of Torus by Wikipedia: ‘In geometry, a torus (plural tori) is a surface of revolution generated by revolving a circle in three-dimensional space about an axis coplanar with the circle.’
Definiton of Torus by most – ‘a pretty swirly pattern that makes your eyes go funny’.
But is it one block or many? And which way up does it go?
One of my favourite formations from Sacred Geometry is the Star Tetrahedron/double tetrahedron. This symbol is also known as the ‘Merkaba’ in some spiritual circles and is seen as a vehicle of space, time and dimensions.
Mandala design focused around the formation in Sacred Geometry known as the ‘Seed of Life’. Fineliners and white gel pen.
For 2016’s Inktober, I’ve decided to focus on illustrating designs inspired by the various forms, shapes and patterns in Sacred Geometry – this is anything form the Fibonacci spiral to The Metatron Cube to dodeca-whatsits. Day 1’s illustration shows a small section of the geometry ‘The Seed of Life’, itself a small section of ‘The Flower of Life’. A very black and white Mars (only monochrome because my red pen is currently A.W.O.L) makes up the centre circle.
My first ever attempt at a mandala. It’s been really enjoyable to create, I’m kind of glad I ran out of paper room or it might’ve threatened to expand forever! Definitely not going to be my last.
One of my favourite plants and a hell of a lot of dots…
Another fineliner creation for the INKtober31. challenge on Facebook. Thus far I haven’t stuck to the optional themes given but today’s theme was ‘spiral’ and I really can’t resist an excuse to whip Fibonacci out. That sounded a lot more like a euphemism than I meant it to. I was originally going to draw ammonites surrounding the spiral but then realised that their shells didn’t actually follow the Golden Ratio. So the ammonites have been saved until another day and the nautilus’ (nautiluses? nautili?) have taken their place for today.
