I would affectionately refer to this one as a slow burn 🔥⏳🔥 I’ve been chipping away at this off and on for the last few years. I created this for one of my favorite musical artists, Amani Friend. It was a unique project, in that, we didn’t have a timeline, there was no rush. I really dove deep into a few different rhythms, and it was awesome to just let it flow with no restrictions or deadlines.
I am a huge fan of Amani’s work, and his music has been a major influence on my artwork. His complex sonic soundscapes are phenomenal accompaniments to late-night drawing sessions. Each track takes you an elaborate journey to magical destinations… often rooted deeply in jungle vibes and ancient rhythms.
I was drawn to capture the Jaguar’s energy in this piece, celebrating their intense focus and clarity of vision. The spirit of the Jaguar embodies the power of foresight and the ability to embrace change.
Even though the creation of this piece began long before the current pandemic struck, it feels appropriate, and important… to try and embrace these changes before us, and adapt the best we can. Perhaps we can learn from the Jaguar spirit and resolve some of our past issues, and move forward with higher integrity and a deeper understanding of what we value most in this life ❤️🙏❤️
