The stockings wondered why Frankie wasn’t chasing after them today, and so they wearily followed behind him. But the zombie cow had different things on his mind today. He was going to propose to the lady of his dreams, and so he carried a fresh fish bouquet for her.

Frankie wasn’t afraid to leave his property alone for he knew that thanks to the old mushroom, nobody would get close to the house. The thing was completely harmless, but he was in great need of a dentist. Not only his breath could kill an army, but he also wailed in pain at night sometimes, what convinced all Frankie’s neighbors that his mansion was haunted. The cow learned to live with the smell, the good always comes with bad, he thought. And yet he decided it was a time to get old mushroom a dentist and put him out of his misery. (Besides, he doubted that his beloved would tolerate this stench)

---------------------------------------------------------------------

This was done for :iconsilentkitty:'s contest. It started out with a doodle of that tree house and then I kept adding canvas size to it and at once I got to the bottom of the picture Frankie popped up. And so it was completly unplanned, but hey... I suppose some characters just demand attention.

I'm afraid it's not bizarre enough, but I certainly had a lot of fun with it :D, so it doesn't matter at the end.

*edit* I'm placing it back in the gallery. It may not be a portfolio piece, but I want to keep working on that story, and I need a better reminder.

I genuinely would like to spend ten minutes inside your mind. I bet it would be the most unique ten minutes I would ever spend.

Firstly I would like to say that I'm amazed that you spent time to comment on so many of my pictures, I'm glad that you like my art this much, so thank you! I hope you'll forgive me for not replying to all of them, but I feel like all I could say to most of them is a variety of thanks and that would just clutter up your inbox. (I do want you to know that I am grateful though)

As far as this picture is concerned, you might see more of Frankie's world in the future, because I'm writing and illustrating a book with him. (it's a personal project of mine) I think that if enough people show interest in it, it will keep me motivated to finish it in timelier manner.

This so cool in so many ways. I love the tree house, the upside down tree, the puple snake pattern. What a dreamy colored background. The cow and the fish bouquet are outrageously amusing and he has a button nose! Very unique.

I'm glad that you like it, thank you :D. As far as the button is concerned - it's actually Frankie's eye not his nose! I was trying to see it from your perspective but I really can't somehow. I just uploaded another picture with him also in case you are interested.

oops. Sorry. I was seeing the black as his left eye, the red button as a nose and thought the right eye would also be black and not visable because his head was facing a bit to the right.

I really adore Frankie. I love that he can just cross over from your 3-d projects into an entirely different medium and still look natural :)

The image is also, like always, quite gorgeous to look at. The colors, especially, are so rich and pleasing to look at.

I find this one of those things I could gaze upon for hours and STILL see new things. I LOVE the colors you used, and on your canvas makes it look like it was watercolored. I particularly love Frankie...I'd never considered an undead cow before. :XD: And he is executed (pun intended) wonderfully here. It's got a definite Seussian quality to it, but remains totally original. I LOVE IT! :D

And I'm not too certain how Frankie came to be... I think I was doodling in class one day, feeling sleep deprived. (and that can bring a lot of interesting ideas on ones mind) I'm glad that you like it.

You know, I like how with your surreal work it never ever seems scary or strange...it almost always conveys a sense of oddity yet not in a frightening manner...like a childrens book or something, but with adult intelligence. Umm, if that makes any sense. :)

So, what I'm trying to say is that this is another excellent, strange but wonderful piece. I love the colors and the various things sticking out at odd angles....it really catches my eye. Nice stuff again.

I'm quite liking the top right-hand sky ... and the fish. The fish rock. Haha; one is smiling. Good for Frankie. The mushroom reminds me of Mario. Do, do make a series (I originally wrote 'series' as 'serious' .... ha, mm, irony).
