The Speaking Tree
Have you ever seen a tree which looked like having a face on it? No, of course not a real face, but something which reminded you of a face? Berlin has quite a lot of forests, and there have been some trees with funny forms on them.
So suddenly I had an imagine in my head which kind of wanted to be painted, the image of a tree with an old man’s face. I took a pencil and did a first sketch, and then inked the sketch and colored it with my new copic markers. I colored the eye in red because I thought it would make a nice contrast.
Now I am thinking about putting the elf and the Speaking Tree together. They could be a nice contrast, too: The young and happy dancing elf, and the old Wise Speaking Tree, maybe saying something like “Stop dancing around in the woods and do something useful!” Maybe there could be a cartoon with speech balloons? I’ll keep you posted!
