Middle piece of a 'See No evil, hear no evil, speak no evil' triptych.
Always wanted to paint a triptych…. maybe coz I just like the word!

Pencil sketch, paint in photoshop.

How about a 'See No evil, hear no evil, speak no evil', the Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder version.
2 greats for the price of one :)

Its naff in places but rammed full of pryor and wilders best bits. :)
When he stands up on the subaway and says "im not black, does dad know"n is just devastating :D

True fact about pryor, in an interview the guy said to him you didnt succeed(in killing yourself), pryor said i did, i killed the person i was. its on yoopoop somewhere. watch some of his dvds, sunset strip,
THAT is a comedian, sue perkins take note(and miranda fart, catherine fate, holly walsh(funny as a toilet paper shortage during a disentry outbreak) )

Fantastic work! I'm an amateur with digital media and usually stick with traditional illustration. Is there a term for when the text is "hollow" like that and you can see the picture behind it? I've been wanting to look up some tutorials on how to do it but I'm afraid I don't know what to search for (and how to phrase it). Could you point me in the right direction? 
Cheers!

Mask or masking would be a term to cover that, particularly if you are using photoshop.
I just painted a white box as a layer above the painting, typed the text where I wanted it, held down the command key when clicking on that layer and used the loaded selection to delete that area from the white box. Might sound confusing, but its pretty easy really.
Hope that helps,

Cheers!

The art was exquisite, the hygiene appalling!
