The Letter

The Letter

A commission made for

He requested a picture of his character Umbrella Man delivering a letter to a sleeping Niels.

As he put it: “To make sense of this picture, it would seem Umbrella Man is delivering a message to Niels, something which may very well seem utterly trivial at the time he reads it - but someday will cause something important in his life, for better or for worse.”

The umbrella is supposed to look fuzzy, like it's not quite right. In fact, I tried to give the whole thing a slightly dreamy feeling, as if Niels is somewhat aware that someone else is there, but at the moment he think he's just dreaming.

I like how the gasmask ended up almost looking like a cranium. :)

Thaat man reminds me of a character in a tv-program that I found quite scary (I think it was one of those running over the summer holidays.). On another note, I thought the way they treated an arrow wound to the shoulder in the same program (the bandage was loose and didn't seem likely to hold.) utterly ridicoulus.

Umbrella man's hair looks like Michael jacson's hair.

I like how the discreet use of red seems to bind this image together. The red letter, the umbrella's red side and Umbrella Man's red tie. I really like looking at this image
