Boy with birdcage by boblea Boy with birdcage by boblea
Reworked illustration which was originally for the front cover of a Paul Jennings book called Unbearable. It illustrates the story of a boy who thinks he has killed his girlfriend's budgie so he wears a birdcage on his head to punish himself.

Please respect my copyright, thanks.

I'm starting to think Paul Jennings is a bit warped. :)
I like all the details - and the grave is a riot!

boblea Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2008
Haha! I'd say quirky rather than warped, and very imaginative!
Thanks. I added the inscription on the gravestone and the liddle broken budgie statue as afterthoughts. :)

I remember this one! I love the yellows in the picture, from the boy's hair, to the feathers, to the birdseed (and how it naturally contrasts with the blues). :D Nice!

Thanks Tc. For a Paul Jennings cover this is quite a limited pallet. And you're right, I used the yellow to compose the picture and link everything :D

That's true, usually your Paul Jennings covers are really crazy and wild, *at least* colour-wise.

such a complex image - I keep finding details - these must be very difficult to create, ha?? :heart:

It's all an illusion! Haha! With 3D sometimes the difficult looking bits are easy and sometimes the easy looking bits are hard. There, that's confused you hasn't it! :)
