So I had my first commissioned painting. And when I say commissioned let me make it clear that I received no payment for this painting other than a high five. Daryll is the hilarious daughter of my good friend Jenny and when Daryll saw my other paintings of animals attacking humans, she came back to me with her idea.
I can’t remember it verbatim, but she told me this with a straight face :
A zebra… Standing on its hind legs on top of the water… Holding a pirate ship in its front legs… It’s biting the front of the ship and it’s shaking out all of the pirates…
So I took that and totally painted it. Here’s the result :
I showed this to Daryll and she smiled and said it was exactly what she had imagined. BOOM!!! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!
I did receive feedback that there should be more pirates tumbling out. Perhaps one or two holding to the edge of the boat for dear life.
I can add those. I have a sharpie for drawing stick figures after all…
