Fish Hook by AlexanderCasteels Fish Hook by AlexanderCasteels
Those who follow me on Twitter already know I'm planning on re-uploading 15 (from a total of 120) of my favorite works which got deleted by myself about a year ago. The reason for this is: I had a lot of work that I felt was really not up to par or relevant anymore, it was impossible to choose between what stays and what goes at the time, so I just got rid of everything.

So anyway, over the next two weeks I'll upload a work a day. They might not always be the most popular ones, just important to me, for one reason or the other.

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-04-27
Fish Hook by *bionic7 captures perfectly the best in surreal art. It's part sci-fi, part whimsy with just a dash of disturbing. Not only is it an interesting concept but it's well painted and executed. ( Suggested by geoffreydean and Featured by archanN )

Outstanding - old-school surrealism! Is it watercolor or pencils? Nice change from your super-tight airbrush/digital work as well. (I was also going to say that it's very Dali, but I see that's been said. Anyway - not derivative of him - just excellent).

Lovely. I'd love a sculpture of this piece to put in a fish tank (with the water in the head being glass or something).

The little spout of water in the center of the skull could be a hypothalamus. Cool!

The streak of red blood is so striking.
