Fat...

Another one for Illustration Friday, this weeks theme is "Fat". This image was produced some years back in 2000 for a small publication over in Australia called Winedark Sea. I'm not sure if that magazine is still running but this was an odd one to say the least.

From what I can remember the story was about this guy that looked after his blind, obese & bedbound wife; it's hazy in the memory, but she used to do ornate artwork on the back of cupboards & hidden furniture when he was out at work. All the while she had been able to see and walk but she had been doing this for years without him knowing! He killed her after finding out... and that was the end of that?!

Well, it's got a fresh airing thanks to theme week.

The drawing is very very good, yes and creepy, but it was supposed to be. The story is pretty crazy too!

fascinating image and story about the workings within dysfunctional relationships. I wonder where they are today

indeed, that is a strange idea.
I like your illustration though.

That is beautiful, in a truly grotesque way.

Damn - I hope that image isn't stuck in my head for too long!
