Don’t get all hot up about this! It’s not some big political topic am starting to split the Country into some intense debate! 🙂 It’s just a fun thing..
Few days ago..following a link or trail on social media site, I came across an American Pagan group..What attracted my attention was their profile graphics.. a pentagram with the American flag design woven into it.. ! So I attempted to my own `British flag’ version..! Except, because of the symmetry (8 lines conversing at the centre..where as the centre is non-existent if I put a pentagram) it does not work the same way.
So here’s what I came up with.. It’s still work in progress..or not.. Am not that bothered to be honest.
What I have done is use a Hern image in the Star at the centre..(that comes from a photo I took at Windsor Great Park..some 10 years ago!)
So here it is..just for fun.. The Pagan Britain badge..! 🙂
If all goes well, a portal will open up at 7.50pm (gmt) and swallow the entire.. No..just kidding. Am going to try something a bit clever.. set up a blog and let it be published at a pre-set time..(cos I;ll be in a Cinema watching the big show tonight!!) So.. this blog should be coming out…at 7.50pm…gmt..when the `Doctor Who: Day of the Doctor’ premiers all over the world..in many countries…in many cinemas..as well as on their television screens (of course!)
Most of this art works are very old..and faded.. I suppose I could enhance it graphically…Maybe another time..But here are the scans of the original..
These were copied covers off those Target Novelisations.. going back to mid-1980’s when I had arrived in UK..
And here are some slightly better quality pencil art.. portraits of the older Doctors..
And Finally, here’s a concept illustration (A3) called `The Forfeit’ that shows the 6th Doctor with Valyard.. Notice the Hanged-Man tarot card, the fallen chess piece, the 13 on dice and so on.. 🙂
ps. Am starting a few new full scale craft projects (Doctor Who) with `making of.. ‘ videos to boot.. Just for fun.. So look out for updates in a few weeks.. 😉 After all, we still have the big Regeneration from Matt smith to Peter Capaldi’s 12th / 13th Doctor at Christmas to get very excited about..!!

Earlier in the day, I was thinking about Clowns.. and the phrase that manifested in my mind was, “Every Clown has a silver eyeliner..It helps to hide the tears..”
So I started playing with an old photo of me, wearing a `rising sign’ mask I had made when I attended an astrology weekend residential course (many years ago.. it was run by my teacher Cornelius Pascheur ).
And here is the result of the graphics.. (I could not help add the `earth-balls’ being juggled.. Am an environmentalist after all..and had to put those symbols in it ) 🙂
It’s a Triple Eclipse period! Normally Eclipses occur in pairs.. one Solar and one lunar…but once in a while, there may be a third one.. (it’s to do with the orbits, geometry and the lunar nodes.. )
Well, we have a Full Moon (lunar) partial eclipse on 25th April 2013, then a Solar eclipse on 10th May 2013, and another Full Moon (penumbral lunar) Eclipse on 25th May’13.
I’ve created Astrology charts for all 3 of them, so you can see where the planets will be on those specific days..
I’ll be writing more on how and who are affected by these Eclipses, and if you do know your own birth chart / planetary positions, – how you can work out if any parts of your life will be severely affected!!
For now, here are the charts.. Come back and check in a few days.. or subscribe to my blog to keep up to date 🙂
