This was one of the most enjoyable pieces of art I’ve worked on in quite a while. Like a few of my other mirrored designs, it began out as one section, then was duplicated and turned. However, this time, I spent many hours painting after that, adding more lines and highlights, layering colors—
I got lost in it for a while.
It’s kind of a world in itself now, with a bunch of stories and little creatures hidden inside. Which is really what artists and writers and other creatives do: discover and map worlds. Nice to be back in that zone again.
In looking out upon the world, we forget that the world is looking at itself.
— Alan Watts
