Tongue Tide

Original size: C5
Medium: Ink (Unipin fine line pens) on paper

This is the other major illustration I completed for TIDE (an anthology of creative writing) that will be on one of the inside covers. I thought the idea of hundreds of creatures squished in together with all their tongues out and interlocking would fit the idea of an eclectic group publication. The book is called TIDE so yes... Tongue Tide... You can...see what i did there. :|

I showed this to a friend and she said it was "vintage Simon", and I guess she's right! I haven't really done a drawing like this in years, going back to my "Serenity Now, Insanity Later" piece I did in high school

There are a couple of stylistic references to the awesome illustrator McBess who inspired me to do a work like this again, as well as 3 Manions :lol:

Hope you like it :peace:

Epic.. the B/W contrast is perfect and the style makes my eyes dribble!

Thank you! I'm weirdly obsessed with ribbon-like tongues it seems.

I need to sit back a bit now and rub my eyes, feel like I've been slipped some acid :P

Haha, I need to rub my eyes too, but that's because I think I'm slowly going blind. Dear god.
