Lunar Moth

This is a quick experimental spot that I did from a pencil drawing. I saw a picture of a lunar moth at the DeYoung Museum when I went out to San Francisco, and the image stuck with me for a while. I'd planned to use the idea in another piece, but really, I just wanted to draw a moth. So, I tried to find an image that would fit the moth idea, and that's where the Mayan carving (a moon symbol), found its way into the piece- another way of combining the rendered and the graphic, which is always fun.

I tried to limit myself on time and simplify the process to see what would come out of it and all in all, I like the way it came out, especially the grainy quality of the pencil and paper. Hope you like it.
