If for some godforsaken reason you have not read Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" ... read it so you know the inspiration for this painting.
This was done with charcoal pencils and watercolors.
My attempt to illustrate Metaphorest's tiny story "Sam the Homeless Snail". For some strange reason, when I first read the story, the first thing that came to my mind was the music "Meditation de Thais", which I imagined Sam would be playing... :S
It died and came back. How did it come alive in the first place? If a mug has a mouth it can spit out your drinks! Everything is wrong.
I've had this idea for a character since I saw Lydia's drawing. I never knew what to do with the character though. So I thought I would put up the basic idea of the character and story and then everyone else can expand upon it.
My original notes were that she was a girl born with no face and her mom kept her hidden away in her house and never let her go outside. But when her mom died she was left to fend for herself. She could barely feed herself and the food was running out in her house and she didn't know what she was going to do.
Then one day a traveling salesman came knocking on the door. Apprehensive at first she befriends him and he shows her the outside world and how to take care of herself. But once outside she is shunned by everyone. Which is why her mother never allowed her to go outside in the first place.
So that's as far as I could ever get with the idea of the character and story. Now obviously you can twist this story in any direction you want or just throw the whole thing out and use the character of the faceless girl in a totally different story. Either way, here is my idea.
It's not a secret for anyone that I am a big fan of sojushots drawings, they are amazing and he always create them based on a story or we used them as an inspiration to create a story for them, so I chose to make this remix with 2 soju characters: Cancer schmancer and the shy little knit boy, as far as I know they don't have names yet so I called them: Lisa and Frank and also, I added another friend a shadow-ghost, I thought they look great together!!!! They are all really shy and they don't talk to everyone but at least, they have to each other!!!! :)
Wolly was different from all the other cats,
but he was never ashamed of who he was.
He carried a little bit less weight than the rest,
yet he never complained and handled it with grace.
Except when he was falling on and off the fence...
P.S. I can't really draw but Wolly has been stuck in my head for ages.
A drawing for Proi's Halloween 2011 collaboration.
Not exactly a classic halloween image but the last time I wore fancy dress this is what I dressed up as but on a much lower budget. I braided toy rubber snakes into my hair. Oh, and I actually wore a dress with it.
