About 10/15 years ago I saw some wings placed in this same exact way, the way the wings came to life when the arms moved hit me and I remember that for a certain period of time I hoped of doing something similar.
Today I try to tell stories through my artwork instead of limiting myself to decorating people’s bodies but this girl asked me to design a pair of wings for her back and my thoughts immediately turned to that type of placement.
It took a while for the universe to grant my wish but at least now I know it’s listening, and that’s something 😀
