7 Deadly Sins

So it’s been a while since I posted anything…but that’s because I just moved! I’m currently in Philadelphia, which is a 5 week stop on my way to living in Brooklyn at the end of the summer. Alright!!
These pieces are from the June issue of Ebony, about the 7 deadly sins in relationships. Thanks to my awesome AD Lynn Galloway, who saw my Mothers Superior illustrations and requested illos that incorporated text similarly. I had a fantastic time working on these modern-y illuminated manuscripts!
I thought of “Adam & Eve being tempted" as a general theme, but was asked to tiptoe around any direct religious connotation. It was a good challenge to try and figure out decorative shapes & images that hearken to ye olde manuscripts, but also ‘feel’ right for the mood of the sins. (Also, have you looked up medieval demons? These dudes are the dooooofiest!)
If anyone needs any more illuminated manuscripts, lemme at ‘em!
