Interesting, that you'd show a woman when illustrating a book about "power".


The pretty woman is naked, G. :)

But you're right, it is interesting and unusual. The bowed or pensive head tilt, the closed eyes. Is she the victim of power or its wielder? Both?

The stains, the crack cutting through her breasts. A lot can be read into this.


I like it.

The image & the title makes my mind vacillate between incongruity & clarity. If I felt like explaining what that means, I'd write one of my usual rambling screeds...

...but I digress.

Hey Y'all

Thanks for the thoughtful feedback. I was shooting for an evocative visual that suggested time and subjugation: yet, contain a certain wistful beauty that suggested the allure of power.


Mission accomplished, J.


Wonder how much "history" is the result of 'the little head, thinking for the big head?'.
