Elephant Man by michaelkutsche Elephant Man by michaelkutsche
this artwork got lost in my folders in 2003, i just reworked the textures. It started as a 5 Min ink-on-paper doodle. it's inspired by david lynch's film "The Elephant Man" and Chris Cunningham's "rubberjohnny". Completely done in Photoshop.

I was tired earlier, but now I will not sleep! Now I know why my beagle stares at the rundown shack in the field next to my house! Great job on all of your work and success in the industry.

i think the comments to this piece are 100% more disturbing than the actual work you have here. it seems most of those who left a comment fail to realize the elephant man movie this was inspired by was inspired by an actual disfigured man, joseph merrick . excellent piece of work though, love how it looks like a real photo, poor guy looks like he could use a pair of pants.
