The Artwork is Everything

A project log for The Levels of Hell: Dante's Inferno 2.0

Like the Sorting Hat from Harry Potter, you are judged and assigned to your own Level of Hell!

I wanted Jeremy Owen to create an illustration for each of the 9 Levels of Hell in Dante's Inferno.  Jeremy was hip to the idea and got started right away.  I was really in love with the illustrations of Gustave Doré (I knew his work from an illustrated version of "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner").  Doré also did an illustrated version of Dante's Inferno... I considered using this (public domain FTW!) but the formats of the illustrations varied so much it would be a project in itself just to try to reformat to something that would work for my tester thing.  I also really liked the work of Edward GoreyGris Grimley and of course Heironymous Bosch, but I also really wanted Jeremy's own style and to see what he'd come up with.  I was not disappointed!
