The 1986 September issue was my inspiration behind my "cover artist "challenge. This cover as a whole fueled my inspiration in many different facets. Between The layout of the Interdimensional 80s graphics behind the translucent human head & a strategically placed clock in the third eye region, automatically steered me in the direction of visionary art. Considering the focus of this competition is flat hand-painted art, I couldn't think of a better avenue to take for my design.
Visionary Art is art that portrays a wider vision of awareness including spiritual metaphysical themes. It's one's interpretation of visions in meditation and inner self explorational experiences. Major influences behind this design consist of the great works of Alex Gray. Not only is Alex Gray a legendary visionary artist, but he is also responsible for pioneering a movement of inspirational influence in Visionary Art for artists all over the world.
I couldn't be more pleased with the way this cover turned out with a fresher updated look from the original 1986 cover. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to finally execute my rendition of Visionary Art to be displayed and worn as wearable art on the hands. Thank you.
