Dragon

2011.
Inspired by Hokusai’s ‘Great Wave off Kanagawa’ and Hokusai’s ‘Dragon’

Dragon was prompted by Pauline’s wonderful tattoo of a Japanese dragon. Personally I’m not all that keen on tattooing but in this case I felt I’d met someone who had a work of art on her back. This image was realised shortly after the Japanese earthquake and the nuclear disaster that followed at Fukushima; I felt that in some way that here was an opportunity to illustrate that calamity.
