David Shrigley Tribute (Vaguely NSFW)

So I’m home for the weekend for Comic Con, which was fantastic. And while I can’t put up any pictures from the day itself (Me dressed as Grunkle Stan from Gravity Falls is not art.), I can put this up.

I went to an art stall and I spotted a magic pen which is also a brush but kind of a pipette as well. it can create incredible detail with an inked brush, whilst never having to be dipped (thanks to the built in reservoir).

So I came home and immediately drew this. I think I’m glossing over some of Shrigley’s subtle features and social commentary but I don’t think the aesthetic effort is too bad.

I still think he should have won the Fourth Plinth competition. Having a giant thumb erected in Trafalgar Square would be fantastic.
