The Witch 387, completely inspired by the devastatingly horrifying 2016 film, The Witch.
New England, 1630: William and Katherine try to lead a devout Christian life, homesteading on the edge of an impassible wilderness, with five children. When their newborn son mysteriously vanishes and their crops fail, the family begins to turn on one another. ‘The Witch’ is a chilling portrait of a family unraveling within their own sins, leaving them prey for an inescapable evil.
My latest art project EntertainMe, where I create another year’s worth of digital collages, based on indie rock and visual media. See my deviant Art page for background info and source credits.
This chilling, unique horror film moved me so much I had to create an art piece for it, and soon! Although I depended too much on existing photography stock, I think it captures the feeling of black dread. The nursery poem I didn’t get until second viewing, creepy indeed. Above are quick sketches and playing with the double V in the title.
To view more, or god forbid, purchase any of my collages, you can contact me here with a note or through email. To buy my art in a variety of prints, go to the site Curioos. If you would rather have my collages splashed onto your phone or ipad cases, tshirts, mugs or clocks (yes, clocks), view Redbubble or deviant Art [dA].
Her Space Holiday 375, Inspired by the indie electronica band Her Space Holiday.
i think it’s unfair the only time i go away is the only time you care
you don’t see the point preparing for the end you’ve made all these plans you put all your friends in silent films
Her Space Holiday is a part of my latest art project EntertainMe, where I create another year’s worth of digital collages, based on indie rock and visual media. See my deviant Art page for background info and stock credits.
For Her Space Holiday, I went with paper stock backgrounds, and played with these pink, pastel hues. It took on this classical, vintage feel which felt warm and inviting to me (click here for another vintage paper sample). I wanted to contrast the pink florals with something modern and fresh. The green and black dots seemed to do the trick.
In addition, I loved these older ads that were on Flickr. These women wearing hats seem to mesh well with the background patterns and colors. And mesh I did.
I started with the original images, vintage paper patters and a black and white, vintage photo. From there it was pretty much splashing around in the versatile, endless, colorful Photoshop Pool. Playing with blends and filters and layers while listening to the selected song on my headphones, on constant repeat seems to work well for me (it would drive my family bonkers if I didn’t use the headphones). Again, below are the original images I started with.
