The full title of this piece is actually:

"The Grim Spectre of Introversion Puts Down its Book Long Enough to Look Perturbed or Hi, My Name is Anti-Social"

Yep. It's a mouth full! And for a character that doesn't even have a mouth, that must be particularly difficult ;)

I painted this piece in righteous outrage against the misconception that introverts are anti-social. Introverts ARE NOT anti-social. They are UN-social, preferring quiet pursuits and intimate contacts with others rather than large parties and group activities. Anarchists are anti-social. There is a difference.

This intellectual character, based on a pumpkin wearing a turtle-neck, has no mouth with which to speak, enjoys reading, requires glasses to see and has a head wreathed in a crown of thorns. This is a very direct reference to the Crucifixion of Christ. It's very damaging to constantly be derided as anti-social when really, you're just quiet. I wanted to go over the top and tie that barrage of negativity into another, well known act of persecution. I'm not being too subtle, am I? ;)

A bonus hidden in this piece that I must have added subconsciously; his hand on the right is gently giving the viewer the middle finger! I love it. It was a happy accident. It was actually a gallery patron who pointed it out to me. That was a fun reveal! 

This is one of my favourite pieces from before I discovered the airbrush. It took a lot of time, care and precision to get it just right. I think it's brilliant. What about you?

A perfect addition to the home of any introvert who wishes to quietly protest against their extrovert attackers; also a great way to start your art collection!

This one-of-a-kind original is acrylic painted on canvas; 12" x 18". It comes with free shipping and taxes included.
