Rekishi (轢死) - death by being run over
Quick drawing of Reki from Haibane Renmei. Face looks nothing like her, wups. This series is incredible and very moving and very personally significant to me. Even if you’re not an anime fan I recommend watching it, it’s not really like what you might assume.
(trigger warning: gore: do not put the japanese letters into google image search)
The One Person that Mattered the Most
(updated: I went back into this piece to make it suitable for large-format printing, and when I did, I tinkered with things a bit... the gradient has been flipped and the lines are different colours now instead of all black. I hope you agree these are improvements)
Based on the classic Mucha poster Zodiac, Grand Bazar and Nouvelles Galleries. Colored in Coral Painter. All of the type is names for the structures of the skull. Even the curling white decorative lines at the bottom are actually type (though it's hard to see at this size). If all goes well, I'll do posters for other Sherlock characters as well, each in the style of a classic art nouveau poster.
Prints are available here.
