Illo Friday: Reflection

Oh Goddesses and Gods, that purple night

How soft the couch! And we, embracing tight;

With every wandering kiss our souls would meet!

Farewell all mortal woes, to die were sweet

- Petronius Arbiter

note: I am currently looking for the orig Latin version of this line from the satire Satyricon, because somebody apparently forgot to give it to me. First time I read these lines, what came unto mind was Michealangelo's Pieta. Strangely, there is a satire in this version that I made as well..

The Significance: Reflection.. (soon as I place the Latin version) it mirrors two different worlds understanding one thought, one philosophy. And no barrier, not even time, can pull them apart.

How sweet I guess depends on two things: how you've lived and how you die.

Cool blog!
WoW,I've seen your comment to my Illustr.Friday and really thought it was amazing because my art director told me exactly the same,it remimded him of Tim Burton's Beetle Juice...I do make animation and though I love Tim Burton never had him as one of my references...;-)

A classic picture in a classic theme. I love the strong, triangular structure of this and yes, it has a reflective air to it. A very interesting spin on the theme!

I like the loose lines in your illustration, and the text in the background looks great too.
