This is what happens when you go to Catholic School for 13 years, folks!
I love drawing nuns, relying on symbolism, and just being blatant at times. In this case, that’s exactly what I wanted in every possible way.
I heard Deicide was coming to town and wanted to show my support by doing a gig poster for their upcoming show. I had a vision of just some praying nun with horns coming out of her head, and a Rosary in her hands.
To be honest, this piece is as deep as it appears, and then some. As much as it may be about some nun turning to Satan, it really isn’t. In essence, I wanted to convey that the same love and devotion that can be shown to God can be shown to Satan. Is it really all that bad? Isn’t faith and love in something and someone more important than who, ESPECIALLY if they’re wind up otherwise being a good person for it?
DEICIDE – February 18th – The Trocadero – 7PM!!!!
The more Artsy Stuff
So for this poster, I did something I normally never, EVER do; I did my own hand-drawn typography and did it as a vector! It was the most draftsman-like thing I’ve done as an artist in about 3 years because of how technical it was. I used Adobe Illustrator and for the first time turned on Smart Guides. I wished I had done it sooner! It made the curves much smoother and I love how the “e’s” came out. The typography was inspired by some classic Gothic Black-lettering, but also a bit of Art-Nouveau.
