Scary Forest Painting


Someone once told me the scariest thing you can meet in a forest is a clown. He’s probably right.

I made this picture a while ago using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.  Each one of these programs has unique features that are useful for illustration. More on that in another post. (Also: note the signature swirls)

Who are the Watusi?

Many of you are familiar with the Watusi from the Beatles song, “Number Nine”. But, I have been wondering for ages; who are these Watusi ? What do they look like? Where do they live? They sound like one of the lesser known of the seven Canaanite tribes that used to populate ancient Palestine. That they travel with elephants is obvious, but what else do we know about them? ( aside from being a 1960’s dance move)
