The Devils

I contributed this illustration inspired by the film The Devils by Ken Russell for the blog Silver Screen Society. The movie is pretty hard to find and was very controversial when it was released. I wanted to create something that showed the main character, a priest, being followed by the Nun who is accusing him of various offenses. The Nun's apparition coming out of the priest's thurible is showing the Nun is with him.
