A few months ago i was asked by Bobby at The Fox is Black if I would like to contribute to his long-running Desktop Wallpaper Project. Unfortunately a small backlog of other things prevented me from doing it immediately (as, being a fan of Bobby and his website, i intended to do), but better late than never, here it is.
I’d been getting an itch to draw some Mardi Gras Indians since watching the first season of Treme last spring, and this seemed like the ideal opportunity - i loved the way that the suits were so all encompassing, the wearer being lost in the feathers and beads in a way that they became the suits. Originally i planned to do a series of these in different colors, but i think i managed to say everything i wanted to with this image. Plus, it took an AGE to draw out and i have other projects that i want to get started on…
Anyhow, enough ramble: you can download the image in a range of different sizes by visiting The Fox is Black here…
