Cherry Blossom

"A hand-generated pattern design, scanned, coloured and re-formatted to create a pattern tile in Adobe Illustrator. Experimenting with different layouts and flat background colour was considered to achieve a feminine aesthetic. Available for purchase on products via https://society6.com/ameliamariexx"


Deadheads

"An illustration on the theme of the Day of the Dead (Mexican Holiday).  My illustration pays homage to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in skeletal form, reflecting upon the religion of the Mexican people, whilst the decoration around the eyes and the roses beneath the title banner link to the imagery from the holiday. The two snakes entwined around Mary's halo are symbols of the Aztec goddess, Mictecacίhuatl, wife of the god Mictlantecuhtli, 'Lord of the Land of the Dead' – both of which are the deities of the holiday. Deep orange was chosen as the pop colour to represent the vibrancy of the holiday and the flame of  the Immaculate Heart of Mary."


Pixel Scream

"This image is a portrait of myself formed through the static colourful pixels contrasting against the background. It represents the emotional suppression of humanity at the hands of technology."
