Limited edition hand-embroidered print sale #graphicnovel

I am making available 10 hand-embroidered prints entitled Who is it that can tell me who I am? featuring an original image from my graphic novel, Molly.

  —

The print captures the moment a crow, the magician of the forest, adorned by a child’s skull as a crown, looks, with intense curiosity, into Lost Lagoon (Stanley Park).

The reflection in the pool features Jocelyn Louise as Molly. (Photographed by Rick Legal).

The imagery in the graphic novel will include drawing, embroidery, photography, collage.  Birds are often included to reflect the core theme/core value of the book: freedom.

   

“Crime Scene, 1947” (in progress)

As an artist/researcher/behavior evidence analyst, these photos fill every cell of my being with joy!  It is wonderful to allow a fellow artist the freedom to do his work within the context/limits of a vision.  Extraordinary.
