A Rising Tide of Madness 2014
As you can tell, I am ecstatic about the coming of Hannibal Season 2. I did this baby in a half day and it’s HUGE. About 18 inches tall at least at it’s largest size. I got to draw some of my favorite things all in one poster and I feel like I grew a lot while making something for a show I love.
Sometimes enthusiasm ensures a fast turnaround— (which means I need to find ways to channel this level of enthusiasm into everything I do.)
Here is a fantastic piece that exemplifies why I love this show as much as I do. Aside from artful framing, color, and beautiful attention to detail in the presentation, there’s this wonderful gem:
"I just thought that we need more female energy because I love writing for women and it was just too male. The piece needed women.”
Bryan Fuller and the Hannibal staff made a conscious decision to do this, and it is all the better for it. Check out the full context here for what I am talking about.
It’s of course a very brutal show— there is gore and death and sadness. But there are also cannibal puns and beautiful framing.
If you occasionally get over-internet-excited like me and feel the need to go back and edit and re-edit your wording… you manage to delete your own post. Which I did. So here it is again.
