ABOUT THE ART

Knight came about, as many of my illustrations do, through my process of lateral thinking of an idea. I this case I saw the posture of the man in my mind and quickly related it to the idea of a man astride a horse. Through some more lateral thinking the connection with horses to the chess piece, 'knight' came about and through severall other steps, the connection again came to the night vision, which was a play on words. Some time was spent getting the posture exactly right, as it is physically impossible to stand like this, and I wanted it to be at least looking somewhat feasible. The objects as previously stated, needed to be rendered with more detail, as the idea was to show man as an insignificant element to the world in which he lives. This created a strong contrast to the mottled, grunge background.
