Hands emerging from the screen creep down like spiders to crawl across a keyboard warped into the top half of a globe.

Same sketch in Adobe Illustrator. This took more than the 1-2 hours recommended but I felt was necessary to adapt to the recommended EFF style.
Tell us more about you. (1,000 characters)
I am inspired in equal measures by cartoons and the intersecting lines of architecture. By day, I work in user experience (UX) and graphic design while also maintaining skills in writing and 3D modeling.
Why are you participating in this Challenge? (750 characters)
I am interested in extending my brand as well as illustrating security and expanding on the concept of remote takeover. Inspiration in the negative--anything other than a menacing hooded figure--led to the question of what things intersect between dread, global reach and the standard tools we use for the Internet. Arachnids are sometimes poisonous and always unsettling; feeding primarily by injecting chemicals that cause the insides of their prey to turn to liquid that can then be sucked out. I was also inspired by the facehugger from the Alien series, a design that turns two hands into a clasping mobile ovipositor. The spatial mapping of keyboard to a globe turns a this tool from outreach to a focus for intrusion, weakness as strength.
