Cheese Players by AquaSixio Cheese Players by AquaSixio

FACEBOOK FANPAGE | TUMBLR | TWITTER




They put pawns on the market,
Nothing seems to checkmate,
We dance on a cheese board.

A new year party has begun,
We see the same chicken run,
Still sentenced to be ignored.

It's the best part of the meal,
"Say cheese" to the new deal,
This is a game you can't afford.

They control us like pieces,
At the rate of the increases,
It's played on a chessboard.


Work in progress :


Time : 25 hours

This is wonderful! Can I ask, are the streamers and confetti intended to convey celebration, and what is the toothpick-like thing in the boy's mouth! This is so my kind of art!

I don't remember well but I think I started to draw it for the new year (2010) it could be this celebration and for the toothpick, it had a cigarette but when I realized he was a child, I removed it :)

C'est sympa de voir comment le décor a évolué derrière au fur et a mesure du travail.
Cela dit je préfère la version finale. Ça a plus d'impact! :)
J'aime!

I love this. Really. It captured me and I don't know why.

And also I have to say that the boy reminds me a bit of Artemis Fowl, but I don't know if you read the books.

You've certainly managed to capture the expressions of the mice.
They look very contemplative and determined.

A lovely piece!
