Artist's Description

Suffused by rainbow light, this poor flea appears to be imprisoned in a 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
