I named this after a character from Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake. Although the figure depicted bears no narrative resemblance to the aforementioned, there is something about the pose and colour that evokes themes within the novel that I found fitting. I’ll do this often, try to conjure the sense of a character I have read or heard about, even if it does not directly relate to the problem at hand. I think part of it is about satisfying certain artistic compulsions, and part of it is about creating something that feels convincing.
