the past

Traditional. July 12, 2021.

This piece was made working through some difficult symptoms.

Cloud Strife, the character pictured, means a lot to me for many reasons. His struggle with his past and his perception of reality is no small part of that. (It feels funny to say this right after something both serious and personal, but I actually had this image on hand because we had just bought a huge wall scroll of this render.)

I'm very happy with the textures the tissue paper takes on when laid down this way, the paint markers around Cloud, and the accidental way some of the Mod Podge dried on top of the moon confetti to look like droplets of water.
