Last night I started work on my next full painting: The Lord of Fevers and Plagues, Pazuzu. Other than my comic coloring project that I am working on, I am currently not doing any freelance work at the moment, so I am siezing the opportunity to start on this painting that has been calling me ever since I finished Humwawa.
It's my goal to make the most nightmarish, disturbing painting I have ever done and of course also remain true to the mythology that surrounds the demon. So far I have the design mostly worked out (which is actually significantly different than the one I posted earlier this year) and am working on composition now. Unlike Humwawa, I will not be posting a work in progress (other than maybe a few teasers here and there) of this piece so the final work can speak for itself.
I couldn't be more excited to be an artist right now. I have so many ideas and I feel more creative than I have ever felt in my life.
Pazuzu is rising...
