Electro Skull and Leaves

St. Patrick’s Day was an inspiration for this “Electro Skull and Leaves” digital piece. I love combining the opposing themes of nature and technology.

Egyptian Art Series by Sherrie Thai of Shaireproductions

I really enjoyed creating this Egyptian Series, exploring the mighty Pharaoh Queen Hatshepsut and the gods of Egypt, Anubis and Horus. These pieces were created via pen/ink and digital coloring, while incorporating my photography into the background. It’s now AVAILABLE AS A PRINT HERE at my Etsy Shop.

Queen Hatshepsut is regarded as one of the most successful pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. Aside from being one of the first solo female rulers of the Old World, she established trade while keeping peace between regions. I wanted to create an elegant and powerful queen, with a nod to the mysticism of magic and mythology of her time period. Atop her head is the rising sun and cow’s horns, which were elements of beauty and fertility, associated with the goddesses Hathor and Isis. Cobras were protectors to the ancient Egyptians, so I added a couple of extra ones ๐Ÿ™‚ Towards the bottom of the piece is a subtly placed photograph of Hatshepsut’s Temple, taken while I was in the Valley of the Kings.

Anubis and Horus are presented with an architectural facade with a scarab beetle at the top, a symbol of renewal in the Ancient World. The coloring of the background is kept monochromatic, while the inner circle resembles the tones of a rising sun, a continuous theme throughout traditional Egyptian art. My goal with these pieces were to keep with the traditional aspect of Ancient Egyptian papyrus paintings, but with a variant in composition and a bit more realistic shading.

I was super excited to visit the great Pyramids of Giza, just an hour away from Cairo. In epic style, I was able to take a camel caravan across the Sahara Desert to see one of the stunning wonders of the Ancient World. Afterwards, I visited the Sphinx and found my way inside a pyramid. It was a snug tunnel, and quite a work-out, but still amazing to experience ๐Ÿ™‚
