Tongue Tide by Simanion Tongue Tide by Simanion
Original size: C5
Medium: Ink (Unipin fine line pens) on paper


This is the other major illustration I completed for TIDE (an anthology of creative writing) that will be on one of the inside covers. I thought the idea of hundreds of creatures squished in together with all their tongues out and interlocking would fit the idea of an eclectic group publication. The book is called TIDE so yes... Tongue Tide... You can...see what i did there. :|

I showed this to a friend and she said it was "vintage Simon", and I guess she's right! I haven't really done a drawing like this in years, going back to my "Serenity Now, Insanity Later" piece I did in high school fav.me/dkxsbv

There are a couple of stylistic references to the awesome illustrator McBess who inspired me to do a work like this again, as well as 3 Manions :lol:

Hope you like it :peace:

Hmm it's hard to pinpoint a specific genre. This one, because it has these faces and cartoonish characters, could possibly go under Lowbrow. More generally it's Contemporary Illustration. But if the content was more patterned and abstract, like what you work seems to lean towards, then it can fit more comfortably under Psychedelic or Abstract. If you do a piece like that really quickly and without thinking too much about it, like it's a doodle in sketchbook, then you could even argue that it's a form of Abstract Expressionism. So take your pick of those! Lol. Or combine any or all of them and make your own genre :lol:
