Jumblies

For Illustration a few weeks ago we had the assignment of illustrating Edward Lear's nonsense poem/story "Jumblies". To read the poem, which is truly delightful and silly, copy and paste the following link into your browser: http://www.nonsenselit.org/Lear/ns/jumblies.html

This was a fun assignment because we could basically make the Jumblies look like whatever we wanted. This is an oil painting, somewhere in the 22"x30" area, scanned and stitched together in photoshop, 8 pieces and it took me 3 agonizing hours, all for your viewing pleasure. Oh and I had to crop off the top of the painting to fit the dimensions of the assignment, but don't worry, you're not missing anything important up there.
