"The Very Model", 2008
charcoal

*MUST HAVE SPEAKERS ON !!!*

trying to incorporate some humor into my work. ALSO trying to take the next step in animating with fine art.

Im really happy how it turned out. Some of the drawings are a bit sub-par for me, but they work all together :)

Sorry for the large file... it WAS 4 mb but I shrunk it down considerably, though it lost some of its quality that way :P

song info:

"The Pirates of Penzance - I am the very model of a modern Major-General"

Performers: Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, The D'Oyly Carte Opera Company, John Reed, Isidore Godfrey, The D'Oyly Carte Opera Chorus
Composers: Sullivan, Arthur, Gilbert, W.S.
Conductors: Isidore Godfrey

This is amazing! It's a awesome piece of art, and also scared me when the face started singing, but it put huge smile on my face to see something so different, and absolutely unique. You my friend should be proud.
