It's been a while since I posted a personal piece for the last time. The past few months have been a continuous flow of awesome commissions that I hope I will be posting here soon but there has been no time for my personal projects. While most of them will have to wait a little longer to be finished I managed to squeeze some time to finish Access the Oracle before the year is over.
I was somehow inspired by "House of Suns" by Alastair Reynolds, a novel that includes some of the most surreal images of the far future I've ever read. If you want mind blowing sci-fi concepts and ideas they are mostly in literature than in any blockbuster movies for sure.
I was trying to catch the concept of a human searching for knowledge about a Universe larger than his understanding. After a few rough sketches I decided to give it a Steampunk feeling -taking some distance from Reynold's source- and then it came the idea of a light bulb as a standing podium from where the human may ask the Oracle. It took more than a year to be finished but finally here it is.
I wish you all a wonderful Holiday and a prosperous 2012!
