Yggdrasil

yggdrasil

Ok, here is my 2D project.  This piece is called “Yggdrasil,” but to be more specific, it is called “Yggdrasil: Midgard” since this is part of a series (I’ll make the other eight pieces at a later date.)  So, why the name?  It’s because I got it from the name of the World’s Tree in Norse Mythology.  Midgard is Earth, and this is an interpretation of Earth.  We see the U.F.O. (symbolizing technology), Spider-Man (for the people of Earth), the sea monster (for both the animals and the Midgard Serpent), and the golden border with runes (for the languages and writing of Earth.)  This is a collage piece that I did, with pieces of cut-out comic books and paint covering an old canvas.  I was experimenting with paint to make the background and to give it the bumpy texture.

For the canvas, I was  testing old paint styles on it, and when it was done, instead of throwing it out, I decided to keep it.  When this project came up, I went to gluing comic strips on in, and applying paint on top.  I was experimenting with lots of paint, water, glue, and comic strips, before I came up with the final background.  I then glued the characters that we see on top, and then I was happy with my piece.
