Kirsty Mitchell’s late mother Maureen was an English teacher who spent her life inspiring generations of children with imaginative stories and plays. Following Maureen’s death from a brain tumour in 2008, Kirsty channelled her grief into her passion for photography.
She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world. The photographic series began as a small summer project but grew into an inspirational creative journey.
‘Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,’ said the artist. (read the rest here).

Judith Beheading Holofernes by: Caravaggio (1598), Lucas Cranach the Elder (c.1530), August Riedel (1840) and Artemisia Gentileschi (1614-20)
Here are my favourite depictions of the bad-ass Judith either during or after the beheading Holofernes, an Assyrian general working under Nebuchadnezzar. Angered that Holofernes had been ordered to destroy her beloved hometown of Bethulia, Judith entered the general’s tent whilst he was mid-alcohol-induced-sleep and slit his throat. The story has been depicted countless times in both painting and sculpture, but artists tend to choose between several possible scenes: the act of the beheading, Judith with her maidservant and Holofernes head in a basket, and Judith on her own, usually holding the decapitated head by her side.
Compositions such as Riedel’s version of Judith remind me of statues of David, with his foot resting on the head of Goliath. Here, Judith is the sole focus of the scene, thanks to the way Holofernes’s head is barely shown. Riedel shows Judith as a physically and mentally strong fighter, an independent woman, if you will, battling for the greater good.
Hi, I’m Pug, and I am a character design artist.
I made these mini reference drawings for any future Lion King art I may want to do later on. Feel free to use this as a reference, as well. :)
