Inspired by a passion for Sui Ishida's Tokyo Ghoul story and his amazing inking style, these Linoleum prints give Spider Lilies a new meaning. Sui Ishida never inked these flowers with red but in the story they represented death, renewal, and the pain of the past. The lilies were delicately carved, but burn with passion dripping in red. Things such as death, renewal, and the past can seem so distant and delicate like a flower, but the emotions attached are drenched in pain and blood. The soft folds of the flower with the almost violent caress of red represents the personal meaning found in the both the story and art of Sui Ishida's own Spider Lilies.
