Artwork Description

Pontiff of the sea. Presented here personally acting as a missionary from the deep. He carries a gallows, the sign of their martyr. He smokes a hallucinogenic kelp from his long pipe (smoking being one pleasure dry land can offer him). He's actually wearing pilgrim's garb, and his papal attire at home in the sea is stunningly beautiful in comparison to this dour travelling wear. The bleached driftwood tied to his girdle is an element of his ecclesiastical dress.
An emissary of the Fey Folk kisses his coral ring in supplication to their developing alliance against man.

Blue colerase pencil and Photoshop. Prints available here- http://www.keiththompsonart.com/pages/pontiff.html

Hahaaaa! I commented on this a while ago on another site, I think. All your pics are exceptionally well painted but best of all they are so original and tell a story. All the stuff the characters carry with them is all relevant to who they are and what they're doing, bizarre as it is. Brilliant.
