reminds me of a reel big fish song... "everybodyyyy... plays guitar." :D love all your work! especially the music-inspired stuff. music and art are so close, they feed off eachother. i love drawing musicians.

For some reason, and I don't know why, the kids in this picture remind me of the kids in the movie "School Of Rock". Great work. And I love the squid as well! :)

this is great!
mostromutante Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2007
This modern muse is not so inspiring for every kid in the painting.
Why the inspiration is like an octopus with six tentacles? Maybe it's slippy like a kind of fish... but when it grabs, it holds well, i suppose.

And, at last... Guitars everywhere!! Just the way it must be...

I really would like to be in Rome that day... but it's simply impossible... damn!!!

"in bocca al lupo" (italian way to wish you good good luck...)

I don't know but this picture reminds me of the song by Elvis "heartbreaker Hotel", do you know? Guitars with wings are brilliant! ! While boys and girls have melancholy expressions and the polyp is absurd! ! I very gently forward! It is delicious.

it's got a real feel of whimsy and creativity. i dunno; the imagery just works really well with me. very nice piece.
RayeS Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2007
I love the way this feels...the peaceful yet somber feeling projected by the characters...
tax-chan Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2007
Oh my goodness, adorable octopus! That alone would make me love this, but as luck would have it, I find it generally pleasant because of all the swirly shapes and nice colors.

As soon as I get one of those incomes everyones been raving about I promise I'll buy the print from you.
unrefinedcomics Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2007   Writer
Every now and again I come across one of those things that are just flawless. You know? Like a really attractive person just walking down the street. That one song you found on accident at the local record shop and found yourself listening to and singing along every day. That film that just describes you completely.
I swear to God this painting is PERFECT!
I wish there was something to express my undying love for this piece. Something of a giant fav. A category on my page that displays my MOST favorite... Or if I could come up with words to show how I feel about this thing instead of rambling way too long...

Thank you!
You seriously just made my day!
jasinski Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
wow, you flatter me kind sir.
unrefinedcomics Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2007   Writer
oh well you grace me with your fancy octopie and penguins.
you know grace is one of my favorite words...
I generally don't like it as a name but it does a good job as a word
I think it's number three on my list of favorite words

I enjoy the way the you have rendered your figures. Mostly the use of warms and cools in the faces catch my attention. Great composition, for my tastes it seems a little too noisey though.

I cant put my finger on it but something seems to be missing from this painting that would really make it pop, could even be how it was photgraphed, id have to see it in person to be sure.

However, great use of acrylics and creating a certain mood. +fav
soultown Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2007
Beautiful stuff, I always love the appealing muddledness of your paintings. Hope the show goes well, and you have time to check out all the Renaissance stuff in Rome....

One thing though, seems like the colours aren't up to scratch in this image, not a comment on your painting at all but I just don't think the photo you've taken of it does it justice.

awesome work :) i love it :D
tonitzagirl Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2007
beautiful painting style....i really love it
pirate-trish Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2007
Daring to defy her rock and roll masters, Edith took up the octopus as her musical instrument and struck out to write resistance ballads... Until her instrument died from being out of the water too long and she ate it.

sorry had a return to the stories I see in your stuff <3
