Crooked Man

This one was finished so quickly! I like all the bulbous luminescent flesh. I know this piece is a bit of a one-liner. The "crooked man" is, contrary to expectation, the man being revealed by the drawn curtain- The Victorian Gentleman in the tophat who is exploiting the deformed man.

I think The Victorian Gentleman is dark and cruel and pretty. If he were real you would let him exploit you, a little.

It came together well. If I were to come out with an album, this is what I'd want on the cover.

This'll end up being a Pegritz album cover someday, I think. Perhaps for the EP "Whitechapel Gods" that I'm currently working on.
