Patron of Poor Minstrels by Keithwormwood Patron of Poor Minstrels by Keithwormwood
Proud arm in the pantheon of misfit gods.
Her cacophonous playing offended all but her own misshapen taste. Mutilated, hanged twice, and wrists nailed to tree trunk by the other gods whose ears bled.
On she played as she begat a daughter never meant to tread the earth, and slain before birth.

This piece will be appearing in Spectrum 12.
Blue animator's colerase pencils on 116lb paper. The rest is Photoshop. Prints are available here: [link]

I don't know why, but the praying fish just makes this picture just so much more entertaining.

I have a series of Babel Zodiac underway that might qualify. You can find the Capricorn around.

Found him. Man, see, I had an idea for something to write a few days ago, but got lazy and ignored it as it banged around in my head. Because it is of a similar style as this storytelling(the slightly grotesque I like to call it) I think this just motivated me to do just that. Kudos!

Truly horrendeous. I love how the horror is accentuated and amplified by the overly long fingers and oddly-formed bone structure.
