Female Saviour Archetype

Hi, followers. I’m about to post a new Creatuie (:

Before doing so, I thought I’d give my darling girl even deeper context. My Honours thesis exhibition was titled ‘Female Saviour Archetype‘— and Creatuie was the star!

The actual thesis/research paper was titled ‘Sequential Intelligence‘, which was about the ability of sequential graphics to simply convey complex meaning.

My exhibition work consisted of 3 594mm x 841 mm prints of digital paintings, and a massive, 52 page, A3, bound process book.

Here are 3 pages from that book:

I love the dynamics of this scene. Jacobs Ladder is one of my favorite films, well worth a look if you’ve never seen it. It is a sad, dark, un-settling work. The main character will be in a crowd, at a party, on the street, and he’ll see people standing in corners or looking out the back windows of cars, and their heads will be wildly blurring, out of sync with everything around them, and no-one else seems to see them. I love the Jacobs Ladder-ness here. I also love the dead-still girl, offset by the blurry, dynamic guys, once again, almost like she or them are out of sync with reality. Love this shit!
