By the end of November I am going to make some more color prints. This is one of the images I want to print. During the past few days I have been editing and coloring it. I still haven't decided if I am going to print the black and white version. Would anyone be interested in that? And I don't know if I should go for the censored or the uncensored version. Or both. It isn't a very explicit image but I understand completely if people are uncomfortable with nudity. I honestly don't know why my drawings ends up this way. I just have to use the ideas that appears inside my head and then try to fully stand behind what I do. Sometimes I really start to question myself. This image is obviously based on the music video to the old Madonna song "Like a virgin". I have always liked the aesthetics of it. And it feels a bit weird with the lion walking through the Venetian palace. I simply tried to draw my impression of it. I don't know how well I pulled it off but it was a fun process. #squidology#comics#comicart#drawing#tegning#art#illustration#illustrasjon#madonna#likeavirgin#lion#comics#comicart
Before I started taking commissions, I reached out to a friend who has an 8 year-old artist son. She had shared several of his drawings on Facebook; they are awesome. And she told me that he really likes seeing my art, so I had the idea to ask him for a “commission” (I didn’t charge him). I wanted him to make his request as wildly imaginative as possible, and he delivered with bells attached. He asked for something like: —a chicken in outer space with paintings for legs and eating popcorn and also a volcano with a smiley face with a confused expression. And a worm riding a chicken nugget. The chicken nugget has wings. The worm loves to eat mushrooms.— I was happy and a little surprised to be able to deliver all of that and more. I’ll be sending this ink and copic marker to him next week.
Oh, and he draws a rad Godzilla.
