Here's a little illustration I did over the holidays. I was experimenting with mixing gouache and ink alongside one of my favorite mediums, the Bic pen. The story I made up for this painting is that the man is stealing the crown from the sleeping Tiger King. If he successfully makes off with the crown he will become king. If he fails he will be eaten by the Tiger King. Then again, maybe they'll bond over their love of magical gold jewelry and start their own show on QVC. Who knows?
