Total Gestalt?

"Total"= broadest topic yet- I guess. I guess anything can be used for "total"- but I guess anything can be used for anything. I guess I guess a lot - can't know anything totally = faith.

I scrapped this sketch for "Wired"- but am totally a recycler...

The "total" is also greater than the sum of some of its parts-- I guess:













































Are you still here? There's more scrolling- this would've been the image for "wired" (see the wire?):














Hey- there's some green in there - Happy St. Patrick's Day!

You may be feeling; weird, uninspired, and tired, but the total of these,is not only greater than the sum of it's parts, but a reminder of the magic you conjure, even when the inspiration is lacking-good old "total", it is everywhere.
Everything can be totalled, but amazingly, few things are worth totalling.
Your original idea for "wired" is very cool and the guy standing on his head,looks just as wired doing pullups.
I'm always wired and totally inspired here!
Happy late St.Pattie's Day Doodleman.

very interesting progression - I like the way the post all works together.

agree about the topic too. It would be a challenge to find something that you couldn't use for total

Good sir!

If Edward Hopper were alive today, he would ...
Well maybe he wouldn't, but if he became good friends with Ed Ruscha, and it was 7 pm and they were driving through the midwest, and they developed this craving for burgers or a good bowl of chili, washed down with a cold beer, there is no question that they, that they... that..
unless of course they were in a hurry and flew, instead.
Regards, neil
