Day 5 - Moth - Reliquary


Day 5 of #inktobershapeshifted : Moth

Day 5 offers a memory and an ode. This is a reliquary to the familiar of Moth. I found this small dear some time ago and have been waiting to honor them in some way. A bed of moss for the deceased friend. A burnt match representing a life lived and ended. The unburnt match offering some promise of renewal and a flame continuing. A bit of a play with tropes as well as we all know how well moths love the flames, sometimes to their demise.

#inktober or #drawlloween for those unfamiliar with the concept, occurs each October. It began with some artists posting prompts and took off and now many different prompts exist: new themes for each day for artists all over the world to offer their interpretation! I loved the concept, but as I am not a visual artist by way of pen, ink, or brush, I decided to make my own version I am calling #inktobershapeshifted: using the prompts to create my own offerings for the month around given themes. The themes chosen are from Manière Noire’s #noirlifestyleprompts and I am very excited to keep posting them throughout the month. These creations I offer to you are one of a kind, created specifically for each day and theme. I sincerely hope you enjoy them and will treasure them as I enjoyed creating them!
