  1. Pretty cool and twisty. It’s a special tarot card set you have, isn’t it?
    Jk… its excellent, and enigmatic. The number of items seems to have meaning.
    … the story of the self-made working child-man after his daily reward… (deep…)
    Ok… can you explain your thinking? Cause I’m sure its more interesting than my bid.
    Tie and a lunch box rocks!

  2. Hello Jose,
    I’d actually rather not explain the image, because this one was created for its own sake, so it’s intended to be viewed that way as well. Some things just need to remain a mystery. Thanks for your comment.

  3. That is totally a gunslinger lunch box with Roland on the cover, isn’t it? (That would make a lot more sense if you’ve read the Dark Tower series by Stephen King, but definitely my first thought.)
    I like this one, though, especially the hinged shoulders and hips. Nice color scheme too.

  4. Thanks, Chris. The lunchbox is both a tribute to the nostalgia I have for kids’ lunchboxes and western movies in general, especially Clint Eastwood movies. And, of course, there’s the nod to the construction of action figures.

  5. The Good, The Bad & The Ugly was one of my favorite westerns, and actually the character that S. King modeled Roland off of for his Gunslinger.
    I’ve actually considered bringing an old tin style lunch box to my day job, at least I don’t have to wear a tie like our friend in this illustration.
    On a side note, I just noticed your thumbnail of this drawing that you have have on the right side is blurry. I assume you don’t mean that, since none of the other thumbnails are such.

  6. That happens to be my favorite western as well. Thanks for the comment on the thumbnail. I’m meaning to fix that soon.

  7. Something about this made me smile on first glance. Must be the little-kid-spark that loves action figures and lunchboxes. It looks open to fun interpretation– especially with the addition of the simple enigmatic title. I dig~

  8. it’d be a cool image for a tarot deck..say, The Fool?..hehe! nway nice piece
