I've drawn "Botanical" texts of imaginary plants like the Voynich, and a little like the Codex Seraphinus, but whenever i've added "squiggles" they mean something. I think that's what makes the codex intriguing, it looks like the entire thing should mean something, but it doesn't (well i suppose like all art, that's subjective) -- Listen Johnny; You're like a mother to the girl you've fallen for, And you're still falling, And if they come tonight You'll roll up tight and take whatever's coming to you next.
