murderous murderous murderous.

i could talk about every goddammed thing here. the mood, the expression, the decision to go for the crazy behind and not the animated over-craze, the best beard and hair, the nose, placement of mouth, restrained crackle of eyes, crown style, depth of cheeks, odd yet perfect hand gesture, circle placement, the off registered painted border edges, and my favorite, the blue scratchy circular swirls behind him. and yessiree, the parts add up to make a magnificent whole.

it's more Shakespearean with ACTUAL madness, which is far more effective and terrifying with the tension coming from everywhere from the fingertips to the icy eye contact directly at the viewer, like when my Dad was yelling then it was cool, but if he was silent, you stayed the f--- back.

AND, this is a total success in a ridiculous Cartoon way! there's no possible way to straddle both worlds! ...but here it is.

The best thing about an eckman-lawn ASOP piece is you get something unexpected. definitly shows your versitility on this one my man, i could see this in a childrens book, almost collaged look. That was one of things i enjoyed seeing in your show too, is the depth of your pieces. lightning eyes. also the flat vs rendered. and you put him right in the middle which is always a ballsy move.
