These are some of the images from a project to illustrate scenes from Revelation, the last Biblical book for a conference.
The Book is full of epic scope, dream-like and intense- it carries your imagination away. It's dream quality means things described sometimes don't literally gel together- so it's a challenge to get the essence of what's been said, and the intensity onto the page- without being cliched. It has a raw, vibrant, urgent, hard edge, and I wanted to get the force of the images onto the page.
It was better to leave detail out rather than try to make it a natural history 'real world' style.
The inkier it got, the better.
