Artist's Description

Suffused by rainbow light, this poor flea appears to be imprisoned in an magic circle. Inspired by the rivalry between Hooke and Newton, Newton’s occult studies, and Newton’s possible role in diminishing Hooke’s historical legacy.

“Hooke’s Flea“ combines: an illustration by Robert Hooke from his 1665 work, Micrographia from the collections of the State Library Victoria in Australia, two images I created in ArtMatic (one heavily stylized in Photoshop), a texture created with the Mister Retro Machine Wash Photoshop filter, numerous Photoshop drip brushes, and images rendered in Filter Forge with the following filters: Asteroid Displacement, Rune Circle, Unholy Growth, and Wrinkled Parchment
