This is first in a three part series where I introduced the character The Death Pig, a personification of greed who has come up time and again in my work. I started down this path after the 2007/2008 economic crisis caused by greed on a worldwide scale. I was shocked to my core at how a handful of greed driven companies and CEO's were able to drive the world to its knees, ruining so many lives.
In this piece, The Death Pig, shown as an amorphous, tentacled, flying blob brings a gift of blinders to the local community of worker bees as depicted by the stacks of hives in the landscape. The message here is pretty self explanatory.
The Death Pig Brings a Gift for the Community is a gouache and ballpoint pen mixed media piece on illustration board, 7.5" x 9.5", matted, framed and ready to hang.
