Paradise Lost Knife Etching by mafaka
Paradise Lost Knife Etching
Decided to pimp my knife (Kershaw Skyline) and give both sides a full blade e‪tching based on John Milton's Paradise Lost.

To be honest, this was maybe my third or fourth idea for a "mural" to etch onto my favorite pocket knife... but in the end, I had to illustrate these images referencing a number of different prints to get a narrative and composition I liked.

H.R. Giger Tin Etching by mafaka
H.R. Giger Tin Etching
My third Giger altoids tin etching. Lots of trial & error, but I think my method is getting cleaner, better detailed etches. Definitely cleaner than my previous two designs.

I had to recreate the entire "Biomechanical Matrix" image (one of my favorite Giger images) for this; well worth the effort, in my opinion, definitely a labor of love.

If anyone's interested, I'm actually selling this thing here: www.etsy.com/listing/241599196…

Wednesday Addams
Wednesday Addams. Because Wednesday Addams. =) Christina Ricci/Wednesday was one of my first (movie) crushes, heh.

I really wanna do more under-lighting practice.
