Drawing inspiration from Lady Mephista’s title, I worked on the concept of a demonic presence ruling over a fiery Hell, such as one might meet in Goethe’s ‘Faust’ – sophisticated and alluring, but dangerous. In the rough stage Lady Mephista was wearing horns but these were discarded for the artwork as being too distracting. The tail still remains however – discreetly flicking up from behind.
