Looks done.  :cool:  Definitely has a twisted kind of appeal.  Who do you think you are Goya?  :laugh:  Seriously, very nice illustration man!

Heh, thanks.. you've got to understand that I nearly failed art history so no Goya pieces come to mind. I'll be sure to look at some of his pieces today at work though.

He did a lot of cartoons and paintings satirizing the establishment (the king and his court in Spain) even when he worked  as the court painter .  I guess your boredom took you in that direction (with creative results) in this illustration.  Just my opinion. :grin:

Here's something that kind of supports my statement (I copied it off the internet):

The literature on Goya is immense but I favour the Prado/Boston/Met NY exhibition catalogue (Sanchez and Sayre joint curators, Bullfinch Press 1989) with a wide range of articles.

Goya deserves particular study within a course dedicated to the sequential. He has a remarkable ability to


sustain the highest standards of draughtsmanship
sustain characterisation ;
chart interesting waters between the overt and covert ;
play interesting games with captions, titles and meanings ;
use symbols in a fresh and challenging way ;
create fascinating relationships between figure and ground ;
create ambiguous backdrops to human drama ;
establish unparallelled simplicities of composition.
All this he achieves in the context of responding to human character and its deficiencies, to the political realities of the day, and to synthesise his experiences into profound, sonorous and moving visual testaments.

Sit-ting in a Wal-Mart,
Handing out canes of peppermint,

Spitting out his HO HO HOs,
Sticky fingers smearing velvet clothes,

Who-oa Aqua-Clause

(I just heard this parody of Jethro Tull's Aqualung)

I looked at a bunch of his paintings. I really like the ones that he does towards the end of his life. The Witches Sabbath and Saturn devouring one of his children? are great. I remember seeing them in class now, I just never was able to match names with images. Thanks for the information.
