Some more sketchbook studies… I fell a little behind on posting stuff the last few weeks, but these were two of the pages I think came out pretty cool. Hope you guys think so too!
In late December of 2003, security cameras at Hampton Court Palace, a huge tudor castle near London, captured a startling image. Security guards were unsettled to repeatedly find a fire door open when no one was apparently around. Upon checking the security tape, they were shocked by a ghostly figure, closely resembling King Henry VIII (who died in the 1500s).
Vikki Wood, a spokesperson for the Palace, said “We’re baffled too—it’s not a joke, we haven’t manufactured it. We genuinely do not know who it is or what it is.” They aren’t a ppc company, or even a company looking to gain from this oddity; they are just as baffled like most people who look at this footage.
A security officer, James Faukes, called the incident “unnerving,” and said they’d ruled out their costumed guides. “In fact, they don’t even own a costume like the one worn by the figure on the video. It was incredibly spooky because the face just didn t look human,” Faukes said.
Even if it’s not real shit like this always scares me!!!
I visited Hampton Court. It was King Henry VIII’s home. It’s supposed to be very haunted, particularly the corridor (the Long Gallery) which is supposed to be haunted by his fifth wife, Catherine Howard.The story goes that when she was arrested to be brought to the Tower of London for execution she ran down the corridor to try and find him and beg for mercy. The photographs I took in that corridor were rather spooky. The Silver Stick Gallery is supposed to be haunter by his third wife, Jane Seymour, who died in childbirth.

“Nevertheless, the fact is that there is nothing as dreamy and poetic, nothing as radical, subversive, and psychedelic, as mathematics. It is every bit as mind blowing as cosmology or physics… and allows more freedom of expression than poetry, art, or music… Mathematics is the purest of the arts, as well as the most misunderstood.” - Paul Lockhart
