A page in my book discusses the Russian Orthodox Church and some corruption that has spread through. The Russian Orthodox Cross is a really interesting design so I wanted to use that, it also is very recognisable. My first images were very thin and not very bold. I didn’t think they represented the strong identity of the Church and how much power it has so I came up with a much stronger image.
This image is much more powerful but the cross, which I really wanted to highlight, has become much less visible within the collage. This is how I came to create the final bold image which I hand drew.
