To my Mom

Happy Birthday, Mom!

You are my mentor, my strength, my best friend and most trusted confidant – I love you to the moon and back!

PS: You know I’m not good at drawing, that’s why I created this card in Paint ๐Ÿ™‚

Ulysses Butterfly

Ulysses Butterfly

This is the result of today’s doodling in Paint 3D, starting from Ulysses butterfly model and reinterpreted on a whim, to my own liking.

My inspiration stems from the fact that I like butterflies, just like Nabokov – especially intense blue / black ones.

And I am currently reading Joyce’s “Portrait” which resulted (rather unintentionally) in the Ulysses butterfly association – seems the subconscious can exert a strong influence after all.

The project definitely looks better in Paint 3D but unfortunately I couldn’t upload the 3D file here for security reasons. It’s interesting though to play with shapes, images, textures and colours and see how they are brought to life in a 3D experience.

I haven’t ascribed any particular hidden meaning or symbolism to the image, I mostly enjoyed experimenting with colouring the butterfly in glossy red (blood ?) and confining it into a cube (freedom ?, escapism ?) – in any case, I think the end result is quite peculiar.
