Do you miss our “My best work”?) We are back! Welcome Jabari Weathers and wonderful “Creation of Larvae”.

The idea arose after pouring through pages of one of Rosemary Ellen Guiley’s occult encyclopaedias: this one focused on specifically magic and alchemy. In it, I discovered an entry for Larvae; which in magical terms according to the book is a creature born entirely of thought. Instantly I had this image and spent the next few days letting it unfold on the page with a bottle of walnut ink and a quill. 

My biggest challenge with this piece was creating the image of something being created by thought. I had gone through a few sketches and attempts before settling on going straight ahead and just feeling out what feels right in each figure, so the pencil stage was the longest. Once the groundwork was laid, however, I settled into a comfortable groove in realizing these characters, and had tons of fun with the ink along the way!

Thank you, Jabari!
