Like the fez – interesting detail! Any particular background story/meaning of this pic?
The short answer is weird stuff just gets mashed up in my mind.
The long answer…
The fish is a nod to the children’s book “A Fish Out of Water” (the story of a fish that gets overfed and won’t stop growing…I’ve always loved that book). I used a fez because I’ve always found that sort of hat exotic and cool. I’m also a fan of Sydney Greenstreet’s fez-wearing Signor Ferrari character from the movie Casablanca.
Lately, I’ve been reading about surrealism and the fez fish seems to fit in with that mindset. It will probably show up again in a future drawing or comic. ;-)
