My entry with respect to two contest I hope find worthy to share be well @juliakponsford thanks


Thank you I'll go take a look!


Eternal Desire is a handcut collage i ve made a while ago as sample for a series of artworks to accompany a fantasy novel written by my friend @Harrycane. Unfortunately because of my lack of free time we abandoned the plan, but i wanted a chance to present this artwork which i really liked. My main ispritation was Gustave Dore's engravings, taken from two different series "Inferno" and "Ariostos Orlando Furioso".I combined the black and white silhouettes with bold colours to give them a new narrative and a contemporary look.

I want to thank @juliakponsford for creating these amazing art competitions and good luck to every participant


Nice to see you back George! Thanks for the entry!


So nice to be back:) You are very welcome:)


I dig this. I've seen re-issues of classic books that have covers like this. Great work.


thank you very much, i like a lot mixing black and white motifs with colours. Always struggling to find the perfect balance:)

Thanks for the entry!


Sweet awesome fun you are bringing to the table @juliaksponsford. I love how you engage this community. This is a marvelous idea--I love how open ended it is--leaves lots of room for creativity!


I try to keep writers, poets mind when making the themes as well , i don't get as many its mostly visual arts but I'm happy when I do!


It really is a special treat when other creators outside the visual arts add their little touches. There is so much to appreciate. We indeed are blessed!


Thank you creativesoul!
