This is a rather rudimentary photomanipulation of two sketches I’ve had gathering dust for years. Since ’04, I think. Both were done in graphite on your average, run-of-the-mill sketch paper.
I was never completely satisfied with the background, just a sort of surreal sort of dreamscape I sketched out with my eyes closed, nor with the orignal portrait of Friedrich Nietzsche that his image comes from. Not until last night (01/21/08) did the idea strike me to slap them both together.
Given what the man stood for, I think it only fitting he should meet his doppelganger in a place like this.
