Job 7:17

While on this cruise we got to see such wonderful sights as the Coluseum in Rome, the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican and the Last Supper in Milan! I wanted to reference some of that historic art and chose to include my version of Leonardo daVinci's Vitruvian Man in Job.

I had to go onto the ship's internet and search for it (not knowing what it was called). Searched 'man, circle, square' and there it was. I had not been sure of whether the circle was within the square of the other way around and was surprised to see that neither was right!

I did a quick sketch from the internet screen and went back to my scratch paper to refine it. I knew I couldn't come close to making it look 'just right' so I keyed in on the definable features that would make it recognizable: the positions of the feet (represented in triangles), the positions of the hands, the curly hair on the head, and the little hash marks dividing the legs and arms into relative lengths.

I also added the reference bar of measurements below.

I colored in a monochromatic scheme using one tone for the circle area, one for the square and one for the man.

Since daVinci used mirror writing in his notebooks (there the original of this appears) I titled the illustration  "Leonardo's Vitruvian Man" in mirror writing above it. I then filled in with scribble writing above and below to mimic that in the original.

Want to see the original?


 

The lettering is my invention.
