Cleveland Innerbelt Study

illustration of This Japanese orchid bloom is authentic, but truthfully, the foliage should be more like that of jonquils. A vine was needed for a trellis, so artistic license was invoked to combine the bloom of the Japanese orchid with the foliage and vine of a philodendron. This illustration is an enlargement of an airbrush illustration; details completed with brush and ruler. Eventually this illustration was scanned into Photoshop, and the soft shadow and multi-color background were added later.
Next illustration of The ravaged heart was created for an audio CD cover. It required three hearts, one inside the other. The outermost as if an explosion had blown a hole in the center. The second heart would be visible inside, appearing to have been scratched open. The scratched opening would reveal a third heart, shattered. At the center, a blue pearl from which light radiates. Where all the damage of the hearts symbolizes emotional distress, the blue pearl represents the blue pearl of a Kundalini Awakening.
