Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley by Diana Leto
I love how Diana has made the lightning a part of Mary herself. Indeed, the fiery sparks appear to be emanating directly from her. Placing quill to parchment, she is about to write:
"It was on a dreary night of November that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils..."
And, thus, she changed the world forever.
Mary Shelley practically made me creatively, bit by bit, just as she stitched together her undying Monster. I would not be the writer, nor the man I am, without her haunting influence.
