Artwork – Golden Woods

without comments

Artwork - CHEMO: The Town of Golden WoodsThe cover for the 19 Nocturne Boulevard episode CHEMO: The Town of Golden Woods. Julie asked for an abstract cover, and that’s what happened. The story centres around a hive mind, so to express that I used a hexagonal honeycomb pattern (Bees being quite symbolic of collective behavior), that was constructed and rendered in Blender 2.5. I’ve gone for eyes again, and mouths, because they’re such powerful images, it’s how we typically connect with others, it’s where we look when we’re talking to someone. I’d love to see this animated with blinking eyes looking around, and mouths speaking simultaneously.

My own eye and mouth is in that lot somewhere. The (lengthy) attributions follow …
