Sorry for the lack of postage yesterday. Not sorry like an apology, of course; sorry as in, you were deprived of my genius for twenty-four hours, and I’m sympathetic to that. (When you have so much homework you have to take the morning off your day job just to get it done, the blogging doesn’t quite happen.)
But I had my final exam last night, which means no class for a few weeks, and a short chance to breathe.
Yeah, that’s the stuff.
So I’ve been getting into Celtic knots lately, doodling them in my notebook margins all semester. Thought I’d share a few…
This one’s called a Trinity knot, or triquetra:
Not sure what this one’s “official” name is, but I call it the Quad. Sort of a variation on the Trinity.
Don’t know the name for this one either, but it pops up a lot if you google Celtic knots.
You might also recognize it from the beginning of Dark Knight Rises:
This one, the Eternity Knot, is actually a Buddhist symbol rather than a Celtic one.
Most knots aren’t just a single enclosed picture, but can be extended linearly as long as you want. I’m running out of time this morning, so I’ll just post the rest of the pictures without the commentary:
Do you doodle in your notebooks? What kind of things do you like to draw?
