The Route to The End

The Art of Thomas Hooper

Today, September 23rd 2016, the Neurosis album Fires Within Fires gets released, if I were to say I am excited, it would be a huge understatement. I wanted to share some of the art that was created during the whole process. Neurosis is a band that has influenced my art since I first discovered them, to have come full circle and create images to accompany their music is very surreal, and has been a huge honor.


Here is the final cover, all hand painted, no photoshop or digital retouching, it is part of a larger piece that is 15 x 30″ – ink, gouache, acrylic and charcoal on paper.

The Traveler


The Traveler by Thomas Hooper

Raking Light Projects is proud to announce the publication of TheTraveler by Thomas Hooper. The Traveler is a varied edition of 70 hand-embellished letterpress prints printed by Master Printer Paul Mullowney. The Traveler will be available for viewing and purchase at the Raking Light Projects hand-embellished print exhibit at the London Tattoo Convention on September 23 – 24 – 25.

The Traveler began with an intricate hand-drawn illustration by Thomas Hooper. To complement the intricate key imagery, Thomas utilized ink, watered-down gouache and bleach to transform Arches Watercolor paper into 70 uniquely embellished backgrounds measuring 20” (h) x 13”(w).

Faced with the challenge of printing a detailed image onto hand-finished paper with different colors and textures, Paul Mullowney printed the key image in white and finished the edition by hand-dusting traditional Japanese GoFun pigment onto the fresh white ink to add opacity and shimmer in the manner of a technique employed on Ukiyo- e prints of the 19th century.

The first 20 The Traveler multiples will be available exclusively at the London Tattoo Convention as part of the Raking Light Projects hand-embellished print exhibit taking place in the Upper Gallery space.

The remaining edition will be featured in exhibitions presented by Raking Light Projects in Chicago and San Francisco with a portion of the edition reserved for release online.
