Taboo 385, based on the FX TV series Taboo. It is produced by Tom Hardy and Ridley Scott, and stars Tom Hardy
So when trailers and then each episode for the FX series, Taboo, blasted onto the big box I was hooked. With the association of Ridley Scott, Scott Free Productions, and this mysterious brit fellow Tom Hardy, I knew I would be a follower. Sordid, dark, dank, ridley-esque, cinematic and forbidden (the title hints to that). This series would include all this in aces, elements that would draw me and other viewers in.
Therefore, I wanted this piece to capture this enigmatic figure. A character with a victorian cloak and tall hat, this was a harder search than expected. I proceeded to create this lush, multicolored background with existing patterns. I then saturated the heck outta the colors. When I found a workable image of the dark man, the piece was almost there. I dropped in the last bit, an old, black ship illustration. I had recently used this on another collage piece. Taboo, a dark, but delightfully different piece for me.
