What do you get when you combine a statue by Rodin with the Phantom, Ghost Who Walks, the original super-hero? You get this:
A collection of posts tagged with "illustration".
There were still a few details left to add, subtract and modify but the illustration is now (probably) finished. I have mainly worked on the background at this point, making it a little less busy, a little more neutral. Here is the previous version: The Chase, 1st published draft
The final result:

I have drawn a few characters, as announced, and here is the result:
About the Illustration
All the animal characters were first hand-drawn, then scanned and cleaned up in Photoshop.
The background and everything else is full-blooded digital work, so I guess this makes this a computer graphic, all considered.
I am using this as a full-screen wallpaper at the moment, and at that size it looks really good. So, I might add a wallpaper section in a few days offering this for download.
Addendum: I have done some more work on the graphic, here is the final result: The Chase Revisited
This drawing would be the continuation, or the next step, of the Creation of “Beauty”. The transformation from a female to a balloon-headed shell of a human being is complete.
The guaranteed-success-recipe to becoming what is widely considered a beauty queen is simple,
as outlined below the drawing, in the handy step-by-step guide.
A step by step guide
- Decide to be loved for everything you are not.
- Decide that attention is more important than happiness.
- Choose to not think.
- Instead of thinking focus on having the latest gadgets.
- Starve yourself to almost death.
- Once you are skin&bones get breast implants with the occasional mastopexy (breast lift).
- Wear extremely high heals that make it difficult to walk & create lasting physical problems.
- Wear tight or very little clothing.
- Wear G-string underwear and insist that it’s comfortable.
- Make sure at least a piece of your underwear shows at (almost) all times.
If the guaranteed-success-recipe didn’t bring the desired results, don’t conclude that you are on the wrong path. Instead invest more into plastic surgery, your hair & nails, and gadgets.
I drew this a couple of days ago, while sitting in the park. The title is Creation of “Beauty” – 21st century version. A lot of times when I go out, if I look around I just get sad. Especially when I see young girls striving to force their bodies into predefined visual standards rather than focusing on anything in life that really matters.
That is why the right hand, above, is falling apart. Most people are right-handed, and the hand is one of our most valuable tools. In this case it is becoming useless, by choice, and therefore obsolete.
As for me, as a result of such “sights”, on most days, I simply put on my blurry vision. It’s a survival mechanism.
Most people are familiar with Tarot cards as a divination tool, but Carl Jung also saw the symbolism contained within the cards as a representation for archetypes. I have drawn a few Tarot cards this summer and plan to create others in time. These three were selected on the random principle, that is, if you believe in randomness or coincidences.
I present them here in the order in which they were drawn and drawn:
The Tower, The Magician, The Wheel of Fortune.
