In yesterday's drawing (below) the man's heads is in an impossible twist, almost placing his head on backwards. In yesterday's post I wrote of the Buddhist idea of Ātman. This was a stretch for me since I am know little of Buddhism. My head was on a bit backwards as I fumbled for a way to express the way I seek the ground level of my impulses, my intuition, my being. I want to act from the core of my animation. I feel that my best moments of art-making are selfless and come from a place where I am without self. Perhaps this is the "true self" of Buddhist philosophy, i.e. the ideal personality, attainable by all beings due to their inborn potential for enlightenment. This from Wikipedia: "The Buddha nature does not represent a substantial self (ātman); rather, it is a positive language and expression of emptiness (śūnyatā)."
