Here’s a piece I’ve been working on and off during the late nights for a couple of weeks now, a visualization what I imagine Man’s final handshake could be. I started by hand drawing the various elements before scanning them in and arranging and adding colour elements in Photoshop. It’s now been through a heap of changes since its initial incarnation- originally it was to be a quick small black and white portrait format piece, with just the figures and the landfill hill with a plain coloured backdrop. Then I started organically adding elements – smoke twists, a few hills etc, and it kept increasing the frame/zooming out until eventually it just evolved into more of a sprawling landscape piece. It’s been through a load of colour changes too, monochrome initially, to gloomy sepia, to the usual apocolyptic fiery red and then the nuclear green hue it is now.
Let’s just hope it doesn’t actually happen. Enjoy!
