The Works of Abbey WatkinsJuxtapoz // Friday, 09 Nov 2012
INeedAGuide put us onto the works of Abbey Watkins this morning, a really great mixture of Native American inspired illustrations and the multiplicity of personality. We focused on her Confuse the Spirit series, but we also wanted to show other sketches and completed works of the Manchester, UK based artist.
Watkins says of the work from the series above, Confuse the Spirit, "The illustrations were inspired by the myths and legends of Native American culture; confusing the bad spirits by not being able to pin point the body to infiltrate the mind. I was also inspired by their use of peyote and transcendent spiritual visions."
