Day 22: Herod and Salome
Herod and Salome (2003) 8x10 pen and ink Illustration, some digital cleanup. Intended for print.
This is one of a set of several pen and ink illustrations made from photographs of 12th century stone carvings, which were done for a small-press publication on the clothing of the era. I used about 10 different photographs of the particular piece as the source documentation, and I'm not even sure I consider it art - this feels more like a technical illustration of an extant artefact than my own art.
