The Abduction by David-Steele The Abduction by David-Steele
I decided to get out the camera for this submission. I wanted to focus on the abduction aspect, as I felt this was the most important element of chapter 2.

I dont do much photography, but the Odyssey project has been a great opportunity to experiment in different styles for each chapter.

The piece is mixed media using a combination of my photography, acrylics, and Photoshop (and many thanks to David for modeling for me) :)

For purposes of the project the white border around the image can be cropped off if need be.

It is funny how nobody ever sees that van. Your pic might explain to how it happens... very clever van

It's so funny... when I first read the submission and thought of what linocut I would do... my very first impression was to do hands reaching out of a dark van door. Alas, I didn't do one for this chapter... but I love your interpretation! Amazing as always...

You must be much faster at lino cutting than me, I'd love to submit a chapter in lino but I know I'd run out of time and miss the deadline (grrrr at work for getting in the way of art :) ). Thanks so much for the comments

As a big fan of Dave Mckean I am more than happy with that, I've always loved how he uses Photoshop to combine a multitude of different traditional mediums.
