Val Catto : The green firefly

Design

Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
I've always been fascinated by the artists, poets and writers part of the Symbolism and the myth that surrounded the green muse was the brief that I gave myself. Broken innocence, squalor, genius, hope, beauty and eeriness.

How was the illustration used:
This image was used for a poster

How did you make this work:
For this image I've used the face from the "Angel" by Abbott Handerson Thayer, the sad, beautiful, broken eyes seemed perfect to portray the green muse. I usually work with famous paintings part of the public domain, trying to give them a new story with my digital collages.
