Eclipse time… a quote

January 5, 2019

A picture has come to thought… inspired by a quote from Paradise Lost by John Milton (1608-1674): “The sun… in dim eclipse, disastrous twilight sheds on half the nations, and with fear of change perplexes monarch.”

I picture fish in an ocean oblivious to human concerns…

Welcome to Cat Nation…

January 4, 2019

Cat Nation came about after my uncle suggested that I do a design with "a lot of cats." For me, it is reminiscent of Venetian byways where working cats congregate. Design by Meredith Eliassen, 2019.

Merry Viv showed up a little while ago with her gang of visual information vectors… kind of a wild pixie, her gang is all over nature and its manifestations. I am hoping she hangs out for a while… happy new year!

Ideas need light to grow… a conversation

Bird: And air!

Oak leaf: parvis e glandibus quercus

Lil’ Wum: Bird-brains… Translation: Tall oaks from little acorns grow… whew!

Merry VIV: Posterity explores ancestors through printed leaves.

During the Women’s March in 2016, and image of an acorn on a poster showed that buried ideas can grow. An idea can take centuries to unfold, yet appear to turn on like a lightbulb. Parvis e glandibus quercus means that great things often have small beginnings. This is an early variant of ‘mighty oaks from little acorns grow’ found in Geoffrey Chaucer’s epic tragedy of two lovers Troilus and Criseyde (1374),”as an ook cometh of a litel spyr” [meaning sapling] that came from the ancient Greeks via Boccaccio.
