My fascination with the dark wizard Agahnim from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past goes way back. There’s a LOT I could say about how this game shaped my interests and helped form the fascinations that drive my artwork, but I’ll save that for another day. Agahnim always seemed like such a dubious and mysterious character, especially if you’ve had the opportunity to see how he’s represented in the game’s graphic novelization from the ‘90s. If he were a band, I’d say it’d be along the lines of melodic death metal—sophisticated in its musicality, yet dark and brutal at its core.
