“The Fates” (or Moirai) is based on the mythical goddesses that rule the thread of life: Spinner, Allotter and Unturnable. My version portraits a darker view of the Fates, where the Spinner produces the magical thread from the depths of her soul.
“Momento Mori” is Latin for “Remember Death”, which speaks of the transient nature of objects and one’s mortality. I wanted to create a world which celebrates positivity and beauty in all forms, where memories of love exists beyond the confines of time. The original artwork was created with ink, graphite, some of my own photography, and a touch of digital coloring. PRINT AVAILABLE HERE
Here are some concept sketches for “Momento Mori”. I wanted to infuse some steampunk elements, but after the rough sketch, decided to add some roses to soften up the image. I’m pretty pleased with how this piece came out as it exhibits an emotional narrative.
