Some time ago I was approached by Neonmob - a collectible digital art platform where anyone can discover new art and grow personal collections of limited-edition content created by artists from around the world.
I created an art set for the platform, which was a great commission as I was given all the creative freedom I needed to have fun.
The idea of Deadly Sins has been floating inside my head for a while, but instead of creating something dark and gloomy I decided to add an epic ingredient to the concoction - cats. This helped me create some artwork that was both dark and humorous (my favourite type). Also we thought that changing the rules never hurt anybody, and added an extra piece illustrating the eight sin! Yes, I definitely made it up myself.
Thanks for watching ^_^
Artists Fawna Xiao and Carolyn Hartmann from Open Studio dc will be demonstrating the fine art of silkscreen for Art All Night which is THIS SATURDAY!
