Wojciech Pijecki is a 26 year old Illustrator from Poland. You’ve probably seen his work through the collectives Goverdose, Slashthree and Desktopography.
My story began around 6 years ago when I had to do some school projects with Photoshop. Back then I absolutely had no idea how to use it, and seeing some great projects on the world wide web only made me want to learn it quicker. My progression was pretty fast, as I forced myself to some hardcore day by day practice. Since then I absolutely fell in love with digital illustration, as it gave me a tremendous variety of art solutions. I haven’t done any studies for it, I only went to kind of a vocational school with advertising-type curriculum, which gave me some basic knowledge. But everything else I had to learn by myself.
Many people thought it was a drawing. I’m flattered with that, but it’s not true. Although the character isn’t drawn, it has some digital brushing elements. But overall, this is the usual photo manipulation style I do. It’s a combination of paint smudges (her face) with some layered textures (her inside).
The concept was made for polish art collective Goverdose, under the artpack called Void. When the theme came out, I was thinking of a person drained from life, feelings; empty and fading inside. And here is the part where the name Bloodroot came in. It’s a plant that actually “bleeds” when it’s cut. It produces a red dye that looks like a blood. So the plant sort of relates to a human body. Specifically – to her body, but in a stage where she is already withered, out of her dye.
