The Norse God Odin had 2 ravens – Huginn (Idea) and Muninn (Memory) who flew about the world, delivering messages, gathering understanding and reporting back to him. These were, in truth, the first gods of premonitions. Huginn and Muninn are the premiere messengers of the supernatural world, they likewise represent secret understanding.
Every early morning rises,
Huggin’s ideas and Muninn’s memories;
secret uttered, understanding exposed,
Raven Gods See World Wide.
Odin and his allies of perception,
Huginn and Muninn,
Are a trinity of quiet viewers.
I just made a great trade of this print in black with etsy artist David Bard for an archer & quot; & quot; s Raven Quiver. Take a look at his work!!!:
HOW I PRODUCE MY PRINTS
I frequently discover motivation from a standard or historic account of the raven. First I pick my title. Having a title helps me with the image and state of mind of the piece. Humor is frequently vital but I likewise select titles that compel the audience to think more about the imagery.
Next I check out references to discover the right pose or gesture for the raven or ravens. Then I spend hours doing preliminary sketches, followed by a series of illustrations using pencil, conventional gouache (nontransparent watercolor), ink and charcoal. My next step involves utilizing digital technology. I scan the drawings and rework them with Photoshop. This digital device allows me to adjust the value of the drawing and I can even move and restructure the image. I use filters if required. Next I print the drawing from my computer and continue to draw with the conventional tools. I repeat this procedure a number of times so the traditional and new innovations combine flawlessly.
In 2009 I began dealing with photopolymer etching plates. In the past an etching involved finish the plate with a petroleum bases sealant then emerging the plate into barrel of acid, cleaning with solvents, recoating, and more acid baths. The process was extremely harmful to the artist in addition to the environment. In 2009 I began working with newly improved and safe photopolymer etching plates. These are UV light delicate printing plates, which are exposed in sunlight and processed in tap water!! In the past I would has invested 20-40 hours developing the printing plate. Now I make use of that time to do my finished drawing. I use my computer and printer to move my drawing onto a transparent sheet of plastic. This functions as my negative for the direct exposure to the sun! I make use of the photopolymer process to move the initial drawing to a printing plate from which I can hand print an edition. Finally, I compose a story. This generally takes me the most time of all!
