A Song of Ink and Pen is all about the greatest human mystery, the mystery of our imagination. No other organism yet to evolve on Earth has even the faintest hint of this divine connection to the infinite. It’s become my obsession to better understand our minds, our consciousness and it’s link to this thing we call the imagination.
The imagination is a bizarre and dreamlike realm that we’re only beginning to understand. This graphic novel has been my attempt to map this connection to the mind’s universe of fantasy and mystery. My goal is to inspire other like minded people to join my exploration of this realm by learning to draw from the active imagination and decoding the symbols that are revealed.
Using the meditation techniques of active imagination drawing, first laid out by the Psychologist Carl G. Jung, I’ve created this book and all it’s illustrations by listening to my subconscious mind and following my intuition during its creation process.
The book is broken down into three main sections of exploration. The first is all about the symbols the imagination uses to communicate. The demons that lurk in our mental shadows. And lastly we dive into the archetypal heroes and villains who we all encountered in the mental world. This non linear graphic novel is broken up into short comic stories and detailed illustrations with descriptions and my thoughts on their interpretation and meaning.
