Jode Gray: Toruses, Magnetic Fields, and feasts of links

Dungeon Prompts inspired me to introduce you to Jode Gray. I think the world of her, and am surprised that she has few conspicuous visitors.

Jode Gray’s Ivy might lead you to think that her blog is a stroll in a park. However, her headers on each page can tip you off that this blogger is an unusual artist.

I have read very few of Jode’s posts. I wandered into her mysterious world when I clicked on her Articles link on her homepage. Most of what she wrote was over my head, until she conversed with me in the comments section. She is completely awesome because she is a great teacher. For example, she introduced me to Toruses, and explained how they, and one of her sketches, resemble magnetic fields.

Then, she taught me how to draw Toruses. I have been studying her Toruses page for over a month. It is fascinating.

Each of her pages includes videos and/or a feast of links for more information.

She is like the umbrella in a picture that she drew years ago:

She guides us as we venture from a familiar, plain white page to places where new experiences are like colorful drops of rain: bewildering and enticing.

Jode Gray: “Like” her and leave her (comments). 🙂

      1. Like you said, it is not an easy read at first because you’re basically delving into a whole nother realm. But it’s definitely a cool site and I intend to look around some more

  1. I think the very instant you wonder into anyone’s “world” Grace, it becomes magical AND mysterious. I just perused her blog and first impression – – she’s a NATURAL BORN TEACHER! Also some of her sketches remind me of Spirograph designs. Remember that? Very intriguing- – chakras topic never fails to captivate me. Thanks for such a gracious post!

    1. Thanks for reporting back, Stephanie 🙂 I, too, thought of Spirograph, when I first saw her Toruses. Then, she taught me how to make them with a compass and ruler. Very cool!
