Based on an award winning piece of art I created using the stone lithography printing process, "Fred Brian" is a combination of the faces of Bill Murray and Fred Brian, former director of the Illinois Wesleyan School Of Art. All other elements are entirely up to your observation and perception.

This decorative modern illustrative image was digitally created using vector and pixel based applications on a Macintosh computer, enhanced with graphic and artistic methods. this piece required about 10 hours of image manipulation to finish. I try to create something new every day.

Star Woman or Sky Woman is the Iroquois mother goddess, who descended to earth by falling through a hole in the sky. She was a celestial being who was cast out of the heavens either for violating a taboo or through her jealous husband's treachery; waterbirds carried her down to the sea and set her on the back of a turtle, which became her home (Turtle Island.) Sky Woman is either the grandmother or the mother (depending on the version) of the twin culture heroes Sky-Holder and Flint, sometimes known as Good Spirit and Bad Spirit. I created this as a promo piece in Painter. It's reinterpreted here using an engraving technique for a woodblock print.
