Las Meninas Project: Final Piece

Las Meninas Project: Final Piece

For my final switch in the Las Meninas series, I was going to animate Dom’s piece, choosing telling the story of Eleazar. But due to circumstances involving bad lighting, time and my camera not wanting to co-operate with the software I had, I was unable to complete it. The bit I did manage has lighting that is so all over the place, if you have epilepsy, it would probably cause a fit.

Instead, very last minute, I chose to do a poster in a semi-psychedelic 60’s style depicting the nemesis of Eleazar; the elephant that crushed him to death. So, today I sat down and created this in the minimal time I had.

I solemnly promise that now that I am back at university (I started monday and am so glad to be back), I shall allow myself more time for projects and will procrastinate less. This piece is only half of what I imagined it to be, but due to time, this is all it ever shall be.

For the piece, I decided to focus on the elephant from the story, as Dom had. I share some of the story in very poorly translated Hebrew (to have a Hebrew-English dictionary, does not fluency make), some of it more obvious than others. The 1960’s influence came from my general love of sixties posters and is my interpretation as such.
