I believe that line came from the book “House of Leaves” by Mark Z. Danielewski. It describes well that what I do is not done for others. Oh my, that makes me sound like a snobby artiste (For the record, I wouldn’t even call myself an artist).
Well, it’s true. When I write something with my script, it’s because *I* am inspired, not because I ONLY want people to see it and go “Oooh, pretty!” Of course, if you don’t want people to see what you make, why put it in the public’s view?
However, this is not for you.
I was quite taken by the new spines on my Pereskia grandifolia. Pereskia are a type of primitive cactus, retaining their leaves, and having barely succulent stems. They do however exhibit other traits such as modified leaves as spines, and growth points called areoles. They are thought to be what cactuses looked like before the transition to mostly leafless and stem succulency.
Modern Brahmi is my term for any writing systems derived from the Brahmi script of Mauryan Dynasty era India. It includes most of the indigenous scripts of South East Asia, India, and other parts of Asia that felt India’s influence. This blog however, will focus mostly on my work in a script of my own that is in fact a Brahmic style script. That’s not to say I won’t bring up other natural scripts, but the focus is on my own invention (I just needed a nifty title and it’s a pain in the ass to come up with one!).
I wouldn’t expect regular updates if I were you, but I do hope you enjoy what you find here.
