Happy Halloween! “Skull Goddess” is an exploration into the lighter side of the macabre. It’s inspired by my recent trip to Southeast Asia, primarily Bayon of Angkor Wat, Cambodia, and the White Temple of Thailand, which depicts modern scenarios of good vs. evil. I created this via the usual pen/ink and graphite media, with a smidget of digital coloring. The pigments are kept to a minimum to highlight the details, but to also echo the stone carvings of the ancient temples.
This piece is available as an 8.5″ x 11″ art print HERE ON ETSY
On their own, skeletons naturally have a great mystery to them, where they can sway towards the dark or light, depending upon the context. “Burning Lotus” shows a meditative creature with magical candles, inspired by traditional Asian art. While this piece has qualities of religious artifacts, the intention is not to offend, but rather, honor the spiritual connection to supernatural elements.
