Augury by AngelaRizza Augury by AngelaRizza
Here is my piece for the second half of Light Grey Art Lab’s Tarot and Occult show coming in October. For my occult/mystic piece I was searching through various methods of predicting the future and came about Augury. Augurs would observe birds (their songs, flight patterns, and the presence of species) to determine decisions regarding commerce, war, politics and religion. They would also observe other natural phenomena such as lightening and sightings of animals linked to gods (owl->Minerva). When I saw birds were involved, I of course jumped at this idea. Limited prints will be available through Light Grey in mid to late October, and will only be sold through them! Excited to see that deck too!

This thing left my hand crippled last week, god too many details….

tell your hand Jason says "thank you and get some rest, need more awesomeness." seriously, this is one of the best formal illustrations I've seen, like ever.

Hey! My name is Rebecca Tripp, and I'm a composer. I'm currently working on a big musical project called "Flower Waltzes". I'm creating waltzes for many different types of flowers. I am making a series of slideshow videos with my music, featuring many beautiful pieces of art from loving and inspired artists, and I was hoping to feature this piece. I will not be making any money off this, and if you say yes, I will be sure to credit you, link to your page and let you know as soon as the video(s) are done so that you can see them. Here is a link to some of my flower music: [link]
What do you say?

beautiful details and colors.
The flowers, the birds, the medieval inspiration is assimilated in a very clever way :3

She looks a lot like Kristen Stewart or however you spell her name.

Really love the piece though. I especially like how the detail is so thick and clustered - it draws attention to the face whose simplicity prevents the piece from becoming overwhelming.
