The Totem Alias
by Blaine Fontana
Fine art print on bright white, fine poly-cotton blend, matte canvas using latest generation Epson archival inks. Individually trimmed and hand stretched museum wrap over 1-1/2" deep wood stretcher bars. Includes wall hanging hardware.
My first burst of inspiration came from old video game covers that had a beautiful analog quality to the cover art and promotional material. I've always loved the bold graphics, bright colors and the dynamic compositions that were used in these covers. My challenge was to execute the connection between a human being and its avatar, this is the most significant and recognizable interface with the game. So I choose a marionette concept, something old world to compliment the digital world.
