Burn the Witch
I was asked by a really good illustrator, Oliver Cramm if I'd like to do some drawings for a book themed on the occult, black magic and all that deathly jazz. I did them and above are the results of that doing. I liked the idea of 'doing' them in a sequential way, so the bottom one is supposed to go to the left of the top one, although they kind of work on top of each other. Witch hunting was a strange superstitiously fueled activity that caused a lot of innocent women and men to be brutaly put to death and I wanted to convay that somehow. No way, Bob Dylan is talking about witches as I type, on his radio show, shit, I think that could mean something, the witching hour. Shut up Dylan, you're scaring me.
