Northern Menagerie

Northern Menagerie was originally commissioned by my good friend, Andrew Wasielewski. He gave me free reign and full control of the art with the solitary caveat that the image must translate to sublimated hoodies and t-shirts to be distributed by his company Wazshop at https://wazshop.co/. As I was born in the US and have been fascinated by Native North American traditions and legends since a young age, I was excited to be able to communicate this place within me. The image remains one of my favorites due to some major breakthroughs in my use of light and because of the 15 animals that it “boasts”. I hope you enjoy.

Process Video

I captured the entire creative process behind Northern Menagerie and composed this speed lapse on the back end. The video is sped up over 100x and many segments of lesser significance have been edited out in order to time the video to the music. Suduaya gave me permission to use his “Shamanic Light” track and actually reached out to me to create his “Venus” Album Cover as a result. As always a majority of the work is done in Photoshop with some special effects painted in Corel Painter. In addition there are Groboto and Trapcode Tao renders incorporated. Enjoy:)
