Maya Jane Coles is one of my favorite tech-house artists, so I've been so lucky to have worked for her twice so far. This design references Maya's "Burning Bright" video where she's lying on altar at her own funeral. I see her as the "dark queen" of her genre, so I incorporated elements that resemble an Egyptian death mask to create a sense of divinity.

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

Lolita is my favorite book, so I had to make an illustration for it. Here's what it's about:

The narrator in “Lolita,” Humbert Humbert, is a hyperintelligent scholar who becomes obsessed with the 12-year-old girl he calls “Lolita.” He rhapsodizes excessively about her childlike qualities and perfection as a result of being the ideal “nymphet.” This illustration depicts Lolita, her mother, and the home where they all live as if from his mind — hypnotized by her above all else. This novel is extremely well-written and intense. The aspect of this work that I love most is the way that the reader experiences Humbert Humbert’s perspective from his childhood to his adulthood, observing his awareness of and reasoning for his deranged pedophilic inclinations, upon which he chooses not to act for the majority of his life. The reader eventually feels strangely in cahoots with Humbert Humbert as he maneuvers to become closer to Lolita.
