Some recent personal work was sparked by the song “Black Swan” by Thom Yorke. The term applies to a highly unlikely event with catastrophic repercussions, that in hindsight many will argue we should have seen coming. This seems to apply very aptly to the current moment. I loved the look of this first piece, so moved on to several others inspired by invasive species, endangered species, and my own nature observations. The pieces start with a pencil sketch but are then drawn digitally using both Procreate for the iPad Pro and Photoshop.
