Throwback Thursday

Conceived as an ancient scroll, this ”book” uses an old belt, inks and acrylic paints (no memory of how I made the cardboard roll). Most of the illustrations from this time use The Old Testament as a source of inspiration – possibly because those were the stories my grandmother used to tell me when I was a kid, possibly because these are the ones where the mythological influence is stronger.

Looking back, I am a bit… surprised by the lack of any commentary on Christianity, and the complete and honest focus on the folk-tales aspect. It’s something that I latter saw masterfully done in ”A Bible” by Philippe Lechermeier, illustrated by Rebecca Dautremer.
