Epoch Neoterica by psydsirius Epoch Neoterica by psydsirius
This is a lithograph, about nine plates and a tone wash. It is the cover of a book I have been working on for some time now.

Is there a specific symbolism to everything in this lithograph?

I need to know how to do this! How does it work?

Sorry it has taken so long to respond...You draw on limestone with a crayon,the image is passed through an oil vs water process, ink is rolled over the image and a printing press pushes the image on to the paper. It is a lot more complex than that. I highly recommend that it is worth investigation.

Nah, it's fine. :D
I'm actually thinking about asking my HS art teacher if she can teach me the process.

amazing stuff, i see alot of meaningful things in your work, it all has a deeper meaning, that theres more to life as we see it perhaps? or theres something hideing from us from knowing the truth, like the all seeing eye, distruction of our own kind, life beyond our own?

great work!

interesting... quite symbolic, specially near 2012... IMO the top bit of the triangle can be different than part of the face, like gold (used in egipt's piramids) or some symbol. but that's personal opinion, this is about the future; and I think humans will keep loosing hairs.
