The Glyph Comics Awards recognize the best in comics made by, for, and about people of color from the preceding calendar year. While it is not exclusive to black creators, it does strive to honor those who have made the greatest contributions to the comics medium in terms of both critical and commercial impact. By doing so, the goal is to encourage more diverse and high quality work across the board and to inspire new creators to add their voices to the field. The awards are named for the blog Glyphs: The Language of the Black Comics Community at Pop Culture Shock (http://glyphs.popcultureshock.com), started in 2005 by comics journalist Rich Watson as a means to provide news and commentary of comics with black themes, as well as tangential topics in the fields of black science-fiction/fantasy and animation.

Jeff Woolwine is one of the Premier Videographers of UFO's in the Phoenix area, and the Host of the show “PETROGLYPHSINTHESKY ULTIMATE UFO SHOW”.
For years it has been theorized that Native Americans saw UFO's, and carved images of them, in the local mountains. Woolwine has proven this to be true by matching his video footage of UFO's to the Petro glyph carvings!
Jeff also makes a connection between these petro glyphs and The Phoenix Lights. He believes that many of the UFO's seen over Phoenix are actually other life forms unknown to us, and has found 4 hot spots in the area for observing them.
Jeff also tells the true story of Phoenix and the Mayan tombs and gold that is still buried under the Sacred Mountains.
Jeff was also was in the pilot for TV show ANCIENT ALIENS.

You can also see many videos and other interviews Jeff has done on his youtube channel:

After a long and unforseen dormancy, Spiritual Politics returns with a bang. This episode kicks off a new multi-part series in which Elias Wilkin leads a guided tour up the Kabbalahistic Etz Chaim, the Tree of Life. But this is not your grandaddy's Kabbalah! Elias Wilkin presents his unorthodox, hyper-individualistic, non-dualistic take on this prfound glyph, merging Hermetic Kabbalah with psychology, economics and politics. This is the Tree of Life--Spiritual Politics Style. In this frist episode in this mini-series, Elias Wilkin explores the sphere of Yesod (Foundation) and the figure of the "High Priestess."

In the late 1800′s an ancient monument was discovered, a remnant of the ancient Mayan civilization. Embedded into the stone were strange glyph’s, alien and mysterious to the early explorers. For 100 years the ancient relic was forgotten.. until one day a brilliant mind stumbled across it. With his knowledge and the modern technology at his disposal, the code was finally cracked and the glyph’s finally translated. What was about to be read would change the Earth.. forever.
Jennifer Cruté started writing comics in 2003. She is featured in a Current TV segment about women in comics called "Kapow! The New Comic Book Heroines." At the East Coast Black Age of Comics convention (ECBACC), her strips were nominated for "Best Rising Star" in it's Glyph Comic Awards (GCA) category. Her cartoons were featured in "Bitch" magazine's 2009 winter issue. She was a finalist in Lambda Legal's "Life Without Fair Courts" contest and was also a speaker on the "Dark As Ink" panel at Skidmore College. Jennifer is also a painter and studies at the Art Students League of New York. She continues to develop a body of work in oil and mixed media. She has shown her work at the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) museum in Brooklyn; The Limner Gallery in Hudson, N.Y.; And the Ocean Hill Arts Sanctuary in Brooklyn. She also works as a freelance illustrator (www.jennifercrute.com), and her clients include Merck, Tanqueray, Nabisco, and Sony. Jenn recently completed a comic for adults entitled, “Jennifer's Journal The Life of a SubUrban Girl Vol 1.” It’s the first book in a series that chronicles the life of this quirky and freckle-face, African American illustrator and artist. Pages from actual journals illustrate this misfit’s upbringing in the suburbs of New Jersey and her daily interactions as an adult in New York City. She introduces several colorful characters which include a host of grumpy family members, schoolmates that tease and gossip, and her close friends Josephine and Maryland’s own awkward experiences. Jennifer’s imaginary companions also influence her actions; they range from the meditative "Miss Buddha Bear" to her nemesis "Sister Sympathy" and her gang. Each accompanies Jennifer as she tries to maintain a positive outlook and peace of mind while battling the insanity of popular culture.
Mahala Gayle will speak about the Year of the Dragon. The Chinese calendar goes back for centuries and so does the Mayan calendar. There is a very symbolic meaning to the Dragon. The Dragon glyph is ruled by Neptune and represents unity, water, blood, primal mother, and is the source of life. Dragon is the Mother Goddess - moving from the formless void into the waters of life; she is magnetic and red like blood.
It is the year of the Great Awakening, and it is time for the light workers to come forward and take their place as teachers to help awaken the rest of the population.
Mahala Gayle is an Astrologer, writer, lecturer, minister, one of the founders of the Asklepius Light Center, editor of the Asklepius Light Center Newsletter since 1988 and writer/editor of Planet Alert articles. Mahala@MahalaAstrology.com
