Cat Hellisen‘s Mother, Crone, Maiden was a bit of a challenge. Full of intense, risky visuals, it proved rather difficult to choose some over others. It took one or two days just to come up with thumbnails, a process that normally takes a few hours.

And then I went seriously overboard with the inks. Painting this was more of an excavation process than anything else.

After hours of lasso tooling this into shape, this is what emerged.
