Portrait as Hecate (2004)

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Typically, Hecate, appeared at the New Moon - or when the moon is not visible at all - but I needed a dramatic foil to the portrait so I made the moon full. Hecate is a poorly understood goddess of Greek mythology and though I've done my research, here is not the place for a lecture in misunderstood goddess figures. Anyway... The model is me. I rarely do self-portraits, excluding characatures, but when I do, I try to make them count. This is based on a photograph I took of myself a few years ago and I've aged it and brought out the shadows as the original is kind of flat. Pencils. Lots of pencils.
