This was the cover to a report I did on the Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch. You know, the guy who paints people with fish heads. I’m not saying that he used fish heads to make his paintings. For example, he didn’t use a fish head as a brush. What I am trying to say is he paints pictures of fish-headed people. Circa 1999. This drawing was circa 1999 but the Hieronymus paintings were circa 1500.
Several “Interesting Comments” below:
- The dog may be the precursor to Brian of Family Guy.
- “Chromium Brown” may indeed be a pigment of the imagination. Google it.
- My sincere apologies for the poor reproduction quality of The Anonymous comic strips. I am scanning them from a copy, and not from the originals. I don’t know if I still have the originals. If I do, they are probably buried deep in storage.
- I believe this idea was conceived after reading “Lust for Life”, a biographical novel about Vincent Van Gogh.
- Not only is he searching for a non-existent paint color, his dog is talking.
- Not only is his dog talking, but he doesn’t even have a dog.
- Make sure that your studio is well ventilated.
As I sit here, I keep asking myself one question…”If a picture is worth a thousand words, why should I bother with writing?”
The cartoon above is the result of such questions.
