….Emerging from the Sea…..

Not at all a music post, but very tentacle related.  I had an idea of modyfing one of my favourite piece of art – a woodblock print – The Great Wave off Kanagawa part of the “36 views of Mount Fuji” by Katsushika Hokusai

I think what i love so much about the original is how it captures a split-second – the wave was a moment in time never to be repeated.  For me it also perfectly depicts the power of nature.  As the wave surges and destroys anything in its path, there is no sense of guilt or remourse.

So I did the unthinkable – i re-drew it without Mount Fuji and added some sprawling Tentacles.  So as a bow down to the original, here is my version.

I also put it through the mangle that is photoshop and came up with this “negative” version:
