Children of Steel, Soldiers of Slime

Framed A2 Digital Print, Apoxie Clay Sculpture

Struggling through dirt and blood, their skin grows callous with scars. Records of their words are lost to the wind, only an image remains. It’s exhausting when one fights for their entire lives.

Inspired by Serwah’s visual style, I wanted to both return to my roots as an illustrator and experiment with character design and mixed media. Inspired by ambiguously gendered historical figures, anachronistic fantasy video games, and anime characters co-opted and fetishised. Made with gracious help from Serwah and Leila.
