31 Rituals started as an Inktober drawing project, one which I was not able to finish because of my busy fall event schedule. Since then though it has started to grow and merge with another idea that had been germinating for the past year.
At the moment, this is just a series of illustrations but I’m in the process of growing this into a larger art piece which explores the idea of Secular Ritual. As I work on developing this project I see it including the following aspects: 31 large works on paper exploring the extreme limits of ritual historically and in the future, 31 performance art rituals, a collection of handmade ritual tools, and a series of illustrated zines exploring each ritual. I see this being an interactive gallery installation in the near future.
For now, prints can be purchased of the original series here.
