Magazine Spreads

Ive come to really like my spreads. In experimentation Ive discovered the process of layering with vellum paper so my final design will be slightly different with more layers. But The magaziine was fun and I really enjoyed the almost printmaking element I wanted to create.

Egyptian Goddess

From my " The Gift of the Sun" poster I chose to do my identification project on the daughter of the sun god Ra. Her name is Bast ( Bastet). She has many titles but originally was worshiped as a protection goddess having the head of a lion. Lions in Ancient Egypt were directly associated with protection. She is still a very feminine goddess of fertility, sex, dance music, pleasure, joy, and fire. She is a very sweet goddess but her wrath is feared for her enemies. She is also a  sun goddess and also a moon goddess, being both fierce and sensual very similar to the cat that she is constantly depicted as.
