Centripetal // A4
Definition of centripetal: proceeding or acting in a direction toward a centre or axis.
| The act of illustrating a mandala for me is pure meditation. I become completely absorbed by the task and often feel compelled to finish the artwork in one sitting. I love pattern and repetition, so doing these mandala illustrations gives me immense joy.
My wish for you is that this joy exudes from this artwork and into your life.

But it also serves the creative purpose of giving expression and form to something that does not yet exist, something new and unique. ... The process is that of the ascending spiral, which grows upward while simultaneously returning again and again to the same point.
