Artist's Description

py·tho·ness (p th -n s, p th -). n. 1. Greek Mythology A priestess of Apollo at Delphi . 2. A prophetess.

Most of the time I control my pencil as I sketch, bending the paper to my will. Every so often, as with our priestess here, the sketch will surprise me and begin creating itself, flying off my fingertips before my conscious brain can even catch up. I already had the concept for ouija board tattoos on an oracle, but as her face took shape I noticed rat’s teeth hiding behind her lips! She told me the life of a prophetess is the life of a rat who dines with snakes, to be vulnerable yet nourished by power you couldn’t conceive of competing against.
