Sooo this is the king of clubs W.I.P for my card set. For the clubs I chose to poke at poaching and all that. So as you may or may not know, one of the things a rhino’s horn is taken for is the hilt of a Yemen dagger.
Sooooo Ma rhino buddy is sporting a human some bone or other hilted dagger. :)
Christmas Elf! He’s like a gingerbread candy elf type deal… Anyway, there is a rather serious matter that is causing my family and I to have christmas early. SOOO I was in the spirit and this is what happened.
I did this piece because I am Bipolar and I wanted to express the experience (at least try to). It’s a bit surrealistic and needs explaining.
The intent of this image is to depict the struggle of people with mental health issues. The bald male is to represent “man” including women. The bandages over his mouth represent the “gag” that stigma forces on us. The lack of eyeballs represents the unknown that individuals with mental illness so often wander through (when unable to receive the right help) The growing out of his head represents life and its sprawling toward the light depicts the struggle people with mental heath go through and that it may not always look pretty but we are trying. The lantern hung from the tree is to represent hope and that often hope is the only thing that keeps us going. The whole figure is rising out of a pill bottle to represent that mental health is NOT all about medication and of course to reinforce the theme.
This is a rough sketch of a piece I am planning on doing muuuuuuuch larger.
There is no species name yet but he seems to explain sudden loss of consciousness or fainting in humans. Although a tad disturbing I cannot help but be fascinated. The creature has a large “sac” that hangs from his face. It is full of a tranquillizing liquid which he spits in the face of his victims. The creature then proceeds to search for small bacteria/ parasites and dead skin, which he collects with his huge sticky tongue.
More research of the creature is vitally important.
I drew this up for a friend of mine who helped me feel “comfortable” in a strange new place. Coloured in photoshop
Hey, I can't link my email in this response, Tumblr won't allow it. I had asked about getting the image of JackBNimble for a T-Shirt. Um, I messaged you on POF with my info, let me know what you'd like to do when you get a chance. Hopefully we can figure something out. Thanks
