Creating something to tribute The Shining was definitely on my mind for a long time. It is one of my favourite adaptations of Stephen king and remains my favourite of Kubrick's work. When I finally decided to sit down and find the time to tackle it, looking at the existing collection of shining inspired art created by friends and artists in the community, I was wondering how I'd go about offering something different.
Ultimately, I was drawn to a simple composition with a basic silhouette of Jack walking out in the snow with his axe. I wanted the actual substance of the composition to be casted from the shadow of Jack's legs, where I could find a way to incorporate the infamous patterned carpet from within the hotel and hopefully deliver something simple, effective and unique.
My son loved the print! The quality is amazing and the team is responsive when you have a question!
