The Black Widow (Illustration)- by 

This illustration piece was produced with black ink and watercolor pencils on paper. I had created multiple drawings of the subject until the right composition of the spider and overlapping skull was found. I think it relates an obvious context with interesting and simple details. I really enjoy the nose and foramen of the skull serving as the eyes of the spider. The background area was modified on the computer, creating a finished look to the entire piece. It was produced in 2007 and digitally enhanced in 2008.

  • Thanks helene. It is a simple design, different in terms of media, than my other more complex paintings and drawings. Glad to hear from you… Take care, Peace-
