An artwork I did for Alias's Lullaby upcoming special issue - Pied Piper. The inside artworks are done by Hector and our Imaginary Friends studios by various artists (forgot how many of them).

I am trying to create something quite different from the original lullaby style by Hector and Seed , so I went with something more graphic and symbolic.

Done in Macromedia Freehand MX, Corel Painter IX and Adobe Photoshop CS2. 6 hours worth of work.

This is some great stuff. There is an upcoming issue of Pied Piper?! Do you have a link to that? I love Pied Piper! (Not for what he did.)

When you say you are trying to create something quite different... I wanted to do something like that too. But I haven't drawn anything yet. Just wrote a poem to introduce the story. I'd be interested in your opinion, and also the symbolism behind this artwork of yours.

if you set this to your background on android with homescreen -> scrolling -> scroll wallpaper and wallpaper size to 2,
...you get night port and (kinda) starboard, dawn and dusk

An interesting twist on several fairy tales. It also carries a very clam feel among the obvious conflict. And I really enjyoed what I read fro the comic Lullaby.

This is what I think the piper is thinking about:

"Yes rats, cast this land in your blood that way the stongest demon rat of all will rise out of the ground and will consume this land untill all kneels before me!"
