This is the third installment in a three part series featuring The Death Pig, a personification of greed that I created.
In this piece, The Death Pig is shown to be a billow of smoke that is resolving into a many handed version of his porcine self, taking the profits from "Hive Inc." in the form of bags of wheat. Here, the hive motif has been used to create a factory landscape where you can bet, profits are number one. Laying in the light of an open doorway, dead, is a lone worker bee with one grain of wheat, her payment for laying down her life for the company.
The Death Pig Says, "One For You..." is a gouache and ballpoint pen mixed media work on illustration board, 7.5" x 9.5", matted, framed and ready to hang.
