Completed as first class assignment. with theme "Whats on Top" or something similar. As in what has been on your mind for the past couple of months. I think the Mayan Calender has been a slight undercurrent to be perfectly honest.
We are in the final year of the Mayan Calender, some how equating to doom and gloom, I think the year will pass peacefully for mine (colloquial for imho). This artwork represents the presence of a particular calculation I am sure is on many minds. It is large and powerful, due in part to the various interpretations that have been passed on from generation to generation.
I initially drew the calendar with pencil using one we had hanging on the wall. although I rendered the pencil sketch, this piece functioned better with an over-layed photograph of the object on top (the same as the one I drew)
switching between Mac and my P.C , lots of tonal adjustments were needed for the presentation, this appears quite dark on my monitor and I love it like this, strongest contrast for some time. Unsure how it appears for you.
One of my favourites.
