The smiling monster by Gili Orr
Clear

“The smiling monster” was featured in the group The Voyage Of The Surrealists.

This drawing is about a confusing situation of rape by a seemingly good guy, who had no clue it was rape…
The victim is scarred for life, as all victims of sex abuse are. Violent rape by a stranger is more traumatic in one way, but when you are raped by someone you trusted, the damage can be even greater, at times.

It’s NOT A PENCIL DRAWING – it’s a pointillistic INK drawing, like all my other drawings.
