One of the four illustrations I did for Joey Mannino's poem "Chelicerae"
In this poem Caleb is plagued by visions of three different women, You, Nothing and Shadow. This required me to design four characters, all of them overlapping but needing to be distinct and recognizable.
Nothing was a bit more ephemeral. A woman but a monster, the trick was to find a way to make her alluring but disturbing. I worked to find a cross between Lady Godiva and Banshees.
