This is amazing. Very skillful (and lovely/illuminating) elaboration of details--the house/cabin on the left, the symmetrical/asymmetrical myth/vision figures at the bottom especially tickled me. Wow.

I limit my homages to dead people. I'd say this is not an homage, but rather a simple sketch rendering created as thanks for gifts received that got away from me. It does not have much to do with the individual... much more to do with the Earth.

Nice one...I really like your interpretation of the shipibo patterns. Not a simple copy/paste, something more personnal here, good job.

Oh, thank you! I'm trying to consciously move further and further away from overt/common symbolism and "copy-paste" creations. I feel like the viewer should be able to gather messages or meanings from the over all well-render,subtlety melded, personal felt whole of the work. We have so many linear associations surrounding familiar imagery, it seems better to step a bit further back and deeper.

I wrote a little about it a while ago: It is so easy to use blatant symbolism to imply the meaning of your work. The greater art is to give the feeling, the inflection, the subconscious stirring... Can you create something that on a cellular level pulls those delicate strings that prompt us to feel at our core a certain unity with all that is? Humanity, creatures, nature, the universe... an unquestionable knowledge, pattern, that binds us, atom to atom to all we know.

I like the mix of styles, from the tibetian buddhist type clouds to the mayan/native american style frog. :clap:

Oh, thanks! The pattern on his shirt is based off of the shipibo textiles of the Amazon rainforest Peruvian natives. The frog is a heart chakra/spirit animal totem. :)
