Some Suzy Spreadwell Inspirations If you're following my postings of art from the upcoming Suzy Spreadwell stuff in progress, you might be wondering, "Where does he get this crap from?" I assure you I am not as insane as may appear to be the case. Or maybe I am. What I'm on about will hopefully become clearer as the plot unfolds in its silly way. In any case: a lot of the imagery is inspired by medieval witch art, and some of it came from having seen Christiansen's Haxan...
...and to some degree Borowczyk's La Bete. But one huge inspiration was this short and very controversial film, the only film refused a certification by the British Board of Film Classification on the grounds of blasphemy, Visions of Excess. Because it features Sister Teresa of Avila in a very sexual way, with Jesus. (Update: it was posted here, but whoever posted it at Youtube got in trouble, so sadly, no more)
Here's the uncolored version of the first page of that first Suzy Spreadwell story that I told you I'd finish, so there. (all the inks are done at this writing; just lettering and color to go) Click image to see larger version at Deviantart.
