'David Cronenberg' print

David Cronenberg portrait (2017)

A5 in size - Inks, pencils, magazine collage and coloured card.

Signed and numbered edition of 30.

Available as a high quality giclee print on matt-finish smooth rag paper.

This is one third of a commission I was given back in February '17 to illustrate three film directors - David Lynch, John Carpenter and (as seen below) David Cronenberg. The brief was to mix in some collage elements into all three portraits and with this Cronenberg piece I wanted to weave in elements of bugs, beetles and flies to tip a hat to two of Cronenberg's masterpieces, 1987's The Fly and 1991's Naked Lunch. The background image I've cut up and used is a microscopic photo of mites found on a fireplace, and Cronenberg's top is a photo of a fly's eye. Colour wise I wanted things really toned down - not totally black and white (as I always like a little splash of colour, no matter how small) but quite stark.
