This print is Sara Adrian's take on the Venus of Willendorf. The original Paleolithic statue was believed to have been carved around 8,000 and 25,000 BCE and was discovered in Austria. Little is known about the purpose or significance of this statue, but because of it's round curvy features some theorize it was a fetish icon symbolizing fertility, childbirth, or sexuality.
How the illustration is made:
All digital illustrations are first sketched out by hand in pencil. Then I scan that image and create a digital file in adobe photoshop and illustrator where create the exact look I want. I have created photoshop brushes to create texture and 'distress' the image.
