FREE STYLE winner is Luke Atay who drew this image:

Shahrazad_Luke_Atay052013It is a illustration about the power of words, and how being beyond the truth of a slave had set Shahrazad free. We see her rise from being UNDER control, to the one holding all the power.In the final frame, the story she chooses to tell about those in the room can only be The Greatest Story Ever Told (for obvious reasons), and the one in which we can assume has made her Queen! The characters are also a bit ambiguous, and could assume many roles in an endless amount of stories (the Darth Vader guard could easily play Shredder, or the thin grandpa Yoda a massive Hulk…and so on). Imagination was all she ever needed to survive.

Artistically, I also wanted to show her evolving with each frame as well, from a cave painting to something more substantial, cool to warm, as she comes to life. And to illustrate how the weight of the chain disappears…

This is why I am so excited about the release of Shahrazad! It is more than a tale of woman who escaped her captivity. It is also about how WORDS and ART made a slave a Queen. Beyond mortal. We writers, poets, painters, and musicians can all relate I think…
