Automatic Drawing

Hi, All,

Just wanted to see if anyone has ever heard of Austin Osman Spare and his automatic drawing.  I’ve recently discovered him and was wondering on your thoughts about his ways of magick dealings.  He sounds rather complicated, but very intriguing.  I guess I’m more interested in ‘how’ he did what he did rather than ‘why’.

  1. I’ve done automatic writing on a few occaisons – which got a bit scrawly at times. As I understand it (and I’m not familair with the artist in question) automatic anything is about opening up and allowing yourself to be directed – by spirit, magic, awen… however you understand it probably influences what you do and how it works. I’ve done it with music and song in ritual contexts.
