Many years ago an amateur genealogist sent me a drawing and a detailed description of a coat-of-arms saying that it belong to my family.  I am just taking this person’s word on this, but I thought the design was pretty cool so I’m going to claim it as legitimate.    A few years back when I was learning how to use Photoshop and Illustrator I decided to render this line drawing in color and depth.  Here’s the result:  (The creature on top is supposed to be a griffin).

“Moving the Stars and Turning the Big Dipper”, a digital construction

In my Qigong class, we learned a couple of movements called “Moving the Stars” and “Turning the Big Dipper”. The names describe, in metaphor, the action of gathering vital energy (qi or chi) from the environment and drawing into the body. We were asked to imagine actually scooping stars into the hands as we did the movements. I thought it was such a cool image that I created this.
