Infinite Appetite :: Digital Vector Illustration

Infinite Appetite :: Digital Vector Illustration

Infinite Appetite © 2013 Brian C. Zickafoose

A bejeweled winged serpent  ascends from a crevice in the campground, armed with emerald shards and slithers towards the shimmering sun. Like its cosmic cousin -the epic oro bouros- the winged serpent, in a gesture of rebirth and renewal, eternally consumes its tail seeking to fulfill its voracious appetite.

About the Artwork
According to the Chinese Zodiac tradition, 2013 is the year of the serpent. Infinite Appetite is artist Brian Zickafoose’s annual tribute to the Chinese Zodiac. This illustration was created on a Wacom Bamboo tablet in Adobe Illustrator. Infinite Appetite was featured on the cover of Super Seed Magazine Issue #8, which circulated at major music festivals across the US from June through August 2013.

 


Fire & Ice :: Limited Edition Print

~ Fire & Ice ~
Image and Poem By Brian C. Zickafoose © 2012

Over a valley of crystal in a distant mystic realm,
Shadows cast long and a day grows late.
A brazen beast props atop a lofty, frosty helm,
To gather his thoughts and ponder his fate.

He broods over truths from ages before,
To journey the path that his passions follow.
Fate’s wind fans embers of memories of yore,
And stirs fiery flora to flicker the hollow.

With a nod of the head, he resolves to take flight,
After a lengthy debate with his restive soul.
He knows in his heart he must fly by night,
If he ever hopes to achieve his goal.

His destiny’s quest is to find mysteries unknown,
In the land of legend his adventures begin.
A day will soon come to rest peaceful at home,
Until it’s time to fly high away again.

DMT :: DIVINE MOMENT OF TRANSFIGURATION
Vector Illustration By :: Brian C. Zickafoose © 2011

A new illustration by artist Brian Zickafoose titled – DMT-Divine Moment of Transfiguration, delves into mysteries concerning supernatural agents, inter-dimensional astronauts and altered perceptions. Zickafoose bounds through the aeons to an era when artist and shaman were one and the same, where the collective conscious and the well-being of the tribe were dependent on the distant etheogenic explorations of the medicine man and where special fruits of the forest were selected for their messianic properties and consumed for the prosper of all, in an effort to understand the paradox of the grand illusion we know as reality.Read more
