This heArt is inspired by a deity of the Hopi of the southwestern United States known as spider woman. She’s been coming into my imagination lately and gently tapping me on the cheek with the pointy tip of one of her legs. She is human and not human at the same time. Like the Voodoo loa, I don’t know why I’m connected to the deities and spirits of the southwest, and why particularly the Hopi, but I am. I mean no disrespect. I just draw what’s in my heart, even when I’m not sure how it got there.
I used a Rotring cartridge ink fountain pen made for drawing and thick italian paper, about 1/8th inch over 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size. I replaced the paper in photoshop for a flat white background to put it up on the blog…for now.
