Story Spotlight

Zep Tepi, by Cosmic Joker

When I was working on Darklore Volume 8, I happened to stumble across a piece of artwork that I instantly knew had to be the cover for the book. Upon looking further into the artist, I discovered a whole body of sacred geometry-based art - all created since just Deember 2012! - that absolutely blew my mind, such as the piece 'Zep Tepi' at the top of this post.

The artist, Steve "Cosmic Joker" Richards, told me that the urge to make art hit him in 2010, but then stopped shortly after, and then again in 2011, but in 2012 "I immediately knew it was staying and it wasn't going to just disappear". Along with this urge came a "throbbing" in Steve's forehead as well as tinnitus.

So for 6 months I just drew non stop bright vibrant pictures with colouring pencils...and then in Dec 2012 I picked up a fineliner [and] haven't stopped since!

My life long passions regarding the nature of reality, consciousness, ancient Egypt, synchronicity, cycles and symbols are themes I'm trying to put into my Art and finding ways of including information too, where symbolic, coded or literal. Trying to make information beautifull springs to mind.

Go check out Steve's "Art of Affecting Consciousness" website, and if you're on Facebook like his page as he is regularly posting images of stuff he's working on.

And if you want to support Steve in his passion, and get yourself something special in the process, be sure to browse his Etsy shop for something you like, or even get in contact with him about a commission if you have a specific idea you'd like 'encoded'.
