I was very surprised and HONORED to be a part of this project. This documentary includes interviews with the Dalai Lama. The Oracle is a Tibetan medium who offers his body to an ancient spirit. The footage of this ceremony is rarely seen, and not often allowed by the Dalai Lama. Although I intended to make the artwork represent this mystical event, it would be a priority of mine to keep the design respectful and classy. I mean, what kind of a jerk would upset the Dalai Lama?! He’s a gift to this troubled world! To start, I set the color to match the monks’ robes. I did not have any high resolution photos, so all of the images I used were screenshots from a YouTube video. Although the resolution was not ideal, I think the cover image blends into the environment well. I used a large amount of simple cloud photographs to make up the spirit image. These clouds were also complimented by layering a number of NASA images in the background. I duplicated the Oracle to suggest that moment may be unfolding within an additional dimension. Before undertaking this project, I had no idea the Buddhist religion participated in this ceremony. I am honored to be a part of this project. Find the whole video for free on YouTube.
