This was the creepy phrase that a friend’s child recently uttered at the snack table (or something like that). My buddy forthwith wanted to see what a “Goddess of Closed Eyes” would look like. So, I did my best to oblige. I took a more muted and sepia horror magazine illustration I had done years previously and did my best to make it a psychedelic riot of eyes fit for a goddess! Hopefully I did my friends proud. Publishing on Christmas because…this is a Christmas present of course! Can’t you tell by how festive and merry it is?
This is a very old work, back from when I didn’t have a scanner and I had to get my friend to try and scan my things for me on her ancient, horrible scanner or snap pictures of them. …so you can probably guess what’s up with the image quality.
Regardless, this is a watercolor with pen and ink that I made of some sort of goddess or Artemis-like figure with her back turned to us, making moons out of the formless void. I’m very fond of it, and I hope I find the thing again someday! I think it may be somewhere among my things but I don’t even know for sure.
