Artist's Description

Story: The young boy and his companion experience their first encounter and first metamorphosis of this series. The zoomorph male/female companion (tiger) wakes up and sees the boy lying on his/her bed, his head slightly leaned to the back, showing his uncovered neck. The tiger carefully takes his neck into his mouth. The tiger’s spoken words are written over his head while the boy’s intime thoughts are written inside his head. The tiger does not bite or hurt the boy, even though the boy expesses the wish to be aggressed. A sleeping child inside the boy’s head and the words “still a kid deep in his soul” allude to innocence. The image is contrasting innocence and gentleness to erotism and agressivity.

Colour palette: The palette contains “agressive” colours: mostly blood red, deep orange, black and saturated yellow.
Size of the original (digital file): 19.7 in x 15.7 in (50×40cm)
Technique: pencil drawing, paper collage, photomanipulation and digital drawing

Credits: The sleeping child inside the boy’s head is a reference to Egon Schiele’s “Mother with two children II” (1915)

Note of March 13th, 2011
Now that I see this image one and a half years after I created it… I seriously believe I am insane. In fact it was inspired by a dream.
