Heart of Darkness by onez82 Heart of Darkness by onez82
Illustration #1 for my entry for The Folio Society's competition is finally complete!
I expect to tweak colors and contrast a bit when I'll have all the pieces together, so as to make everytinng more cohesive.

This piece illustrate the following passage from Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness:
'...but when an opportunity offered at last to meet my predecessor, the grass growing through his ribs was tall enough to hide his bones.'

Beautiful! It made me wonder though, does the nose cartilage stay long after the decay of the body?

Such simple and elegant design, it must've taken you a while to create. But the result is very powerful and understated. Centering on the lone grasshopper makes it so effective as compared to the gore many would try to put into it.

Thank you ChiBurbs.
It actually took a while to create it, but in terms of composition and concept. Drawing and painting process took "just" half of the total time

Have you heard the songs of the crickets slowed down to bee a boy's choir?
