Allegory of Justice by ursulav Allegory of Justice by ursulav
Some day, I will finally figure out that cut paper look that I want to do somehow. Probably. Mind you, once you start doing nonsensical allegorical paintings, it’s hard to know when to stop. “The Puffin Of Organization Astride The Dragon Of Excessive Craft Supplies.” “Excellence As A Young Hamster Maiden Nibbled By The Turtles Of Indolence.” You get the idea.

Anyway, digital, thingy...ferrets...Prints available as always, at Red Wombat Studio: [link]

When my English teachers demand for me to explain and demonstrate symbolism, I will whip this out... and get a detention.

 

BUT IT WILL BE WORTH IT.

Words cannot express how much I love you & have missed your GENIUS artwork & hilarious descriptions (which only serve to make the artwork even better). :D The more I look at this, the funnier it gets! :rofl: The paper-cutout look works well here, as well. :D

I laughed so hard at this when it appeared in my inbox. Especially the "duck of mute despair" part. I really wish you would paint the Puffin/Dragon and the Hamster Maiden too! I love this series. I think you did very well with the cut paper look too!. Thanks for bringing a smile to day.

Who's with me when I say that that doesn't look like a duck at all?
It's clearly a dodo bird of dominance.
..Or maybe I'm just reading too deeply into this.

Is it just me or does that sound kinda... suggestive? :O_o:

Duck looks unimpressed, but I'll take Justice Ferrets any day of the week. Justice Ferrets for everyone!

Nice use of symbolism! Anybody could do the old "Justice is a Ferret" image; but the blindfold and the duck are sheer genius! 7@=e

I've always thought your fantasy animal art could go well on Tarot cards or other types of oracle cards. Especially the animals with the white masks on. But this, I think, would be awesome to see in a deck.
