This Illustration is based on a Spanish joke, which roughly translated say:
“What animal eats rocks and flies? The Flying Rock Eater”
I thought it would be interesting to draw a repulsive creature that flies and eats rocks. I wanted to make the creature comical by adding an obsessed facial expression and busted buck teeth (busted from eating rocks). I thought it would be funny if he attempted to fish the rocks as well, to add a comical kick to it.
With this illustration I tried to improve my digital colouring techniques. Also, the T shirt version of the piece has its boarders cut out so the T shirt colour can come through the illustration.
I dedicate this work to my many Andalusian friends and to Alejandro Daroca.
