The Whippersnapper

Hi Folks,

The kind people over at Gallery Nucleus asked me to make them a small (traditional media) 5″ x 7″ illustration for their Power In Numbers project. This is the result, a combination of mixed media (mainly pencil with watercolor and a few digital adjustments). I had an enormous amount of fun working on this one and tried to incorporate a few hidden messages into the design.

The Whippersnapper:

Lately, I’ve been noticing strange things happening in my street. All kinds of small incidents, most of them innocent like children who fall of their bikes because one of the wheels came lose. I'v notice tentacles creeping away underneath the cars and in small alleyways whenever such an incident took place… A few days ago I managed to follow one of these tentacles and to my surprise they vanished in a cloud. If that wasn’t strange enough, I was completely and utterly bedazzled when I saw a strange figure emerge from the cloud… I ran home and tried to capture him in this illustration the best I could, but… Has anyone else seen this figure in their neighborhood too? If so, watch yourself and be cautious when you go outside…

There should be a few interesting posts in the near future, I’m working on a few things that I think most of you will enjoy!
I’m not sure when the next update will be, probably after the holidays… So until then I wish all of you a happy christmas (way to early I know, deal with it)
