Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater by jobethlovess Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater by jobethlovess
Gahhhh this is from so long ago but I keep forgetting to upload it! I love it though, this project was a lot of fun :) The project was to illustrate an old nursery rhyme or story with a surrealistic feel using old photos and photos of your own, and I did Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater:)

"Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater
Had a wife but couldn't keep her
So he locked her away in a shell
And there he kept her very well"

This nurshrey rhyme actually tells about how his wife was a whore and he found out so he killed her and preserved her body in a pumpkin x] (my teacher said we could do the actual meaning instead of the cutesy meaning, which I of course kind of did the darker one of course haha.)

Used Photoshop CS3, tell me what you think! The people are an old photo that she bought from some guy, but the rest of the photos are mine.

AMEN for representing the true meaning.
Little red riding hood was eaten, as was the rest of the cast. The wolf won.
The wicked step sisters had their eyes plucked out by crows (God, I love crows).
Sleeping beauty was about necrophilia.

The more you go against the status quo, the more human you are.; )

The wicked step sisters had their eyes plucked out by crows... by crows... by crows. I repeat this for a reason. The brothers Grimm edited the stories before them to "sanitize" them for the up and coming generation. Before these "politically correct, Orwellian fucktards" had the answer, it was there before them... in all its glory.

You are a beautiful person.
You have surrealistically skilled techniques.
You appreciate real history.
You can distinguish history from fantasy.
This all makes you one hella special person.
You do not know how much influence you have with your images.
You do not know which OOS instructors are praising your name.
In my opinion, you have the reality of art nailed down to perfection. Please, keep doing what you are doing.
Never let any kind of religious debate interfere with your artwork. Religion is for the masses, not artists.
Now, do it. You know you can. Jesus, if I had one tenth the talent you have, I'd be out there making love, not war... bet ya didn't see that one coming :P
