frank h said...

this is great
your adea for the stains in really original
and - as always - I like that very personal hand-made lines
your illo is full of movement and energy and the 'message' is apprehended immediately

very good!

Paula said...

Hey great drawing!! I like the 'quick' lines on this, and all the black in the background. Hey and thanks for the comment on my blog!! :D

Leopard??

MB said...

Very interesting, in a creepy dream sort of way! Nice movement.

Lori Witzel said...

WB -- sorta leopardish, but since I had no reference and the illo poured out of me it really is more a fantasy jungle cat...

MB -- glad you liked, even though sometimes daydreams reflect midnight.

Janet said...

Neat! I like the skulls, too!

Trevor Pitt said...

I like it. Cool illo. Lemme guess...is this what it's like when you go hunting with Dick Cheney and he forgets his rifle?

andrea said...

Wow! There's a party over here, too! (Is this a party animal? Or maybe an undead leopard?) Cool.

The Unknown said...

Wow. Powerful. I like it.
love

Lori Witzel said...

Thanks for the props, all!

Special shout-out to Trevor:
You are brilliant, man!

I actually have been riled enough about the!@#$% going on here politically that I wanted to do a cartoon with Dick having shot The Dove of Peace as a local rancher looks at him and says "Well, son, that's just not how we dove hunt around here."

But I just never got the sketch right enough...

Jay said...

Thanks for the comment to my work. From the loks of your blog you a a very crative being. All the best.

Ooh, this is powerful archetypal imagery and great use of the spots! Of course, predators need to be careful, with the new suspicion that avian flu may jump to some of them, particularly cats :).

Stunning. I love this piece.
