Digital painting inspired by “Cassilda’s Song” from a book of short stories “The King in Yellow” by American writer Robert W. Chambers. The “Yellow King” was referenced in the first season of the HBO TV show “True Detective.”
The final version of the digital painting featured in the Exe-Arts exhibition at Exeter Community Centre in the summer of 2016.
Companion image to “Enlightenment IV.” Since the theme of this image is crucifixion, it only made sense for me to draw it in the same style as my M.A. art thesis “brokenFixed,” which I’ve based upon images of crucifixion and resurrection. I haven’t been drawing in this style in years, and this is the first drawing in this style I’ve created digitally, not with pen and ink. More to come!
