Kafka by Nachan Kafka by Nachan
say "Hi" and then "goodbye" to my new doomed-to-remain-in-the-closet-forever project, a graphic novel (???) based on the life and works of bohemian writer Franz Kafka ( :heart: ). This is like a cover, lol, or a random image, done for the sake of it, yeah.
I'm sure you won't find NOTHING of the original Kafka's feature in this thing XD and I have to say that drawing a human face from this perspective is like one of the most difficult things ever, for me, with or without a reference!@_@
full view, please.

watercolor + collage on paper

(comunque, ora so perchè avevo quel bell'album da acquerello nuovo nuovo, conservato amorevolmente nel cassetto... è pessimoooo!)

I would totally read a graphic novel based on the life and works of Kafka. If you EVER decide to do that, I would be so thrilled. This is beautiful. I would love to see more Kafka inspired art! There isn't nearly enough out there.

I loved it. I find your art work extremely inspiring and I feel so gladly to come across it. I am studying Kafka's work, and I am thinking about starting to work on a drawing of Kafka's metamorphosis from my own perspective...

Grow a pair and do that graphic novel man, that's a bloody brilliant idea! I'm imagining you do it slightly autobiographical, then spurt off in moments of contemplation and in dreams to portray his imagination through his writing. I'd love to hear your thoughts and see how it plans out. :D

Nachan Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2011
haha, yes, I have to say this is just like I was imagining the whole things: autobiographical with moments of "dreaming/visions"... I should really try to do something out of that, but at the moment I really don't have the time/strenght to do that!;_;

It's beautiful! Interesting use of the glued-on paper. I love the texture; it's as if a miraculous spillage had left a message on the page. Fav'd.
