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
