Metamorphosis



One of my favorite stories by Franz Kafka. If you haven't read it, one day a boring businessman leading a boring life wakes up and realizes he turned into a bug. His family shuns him except for his sister who grows into womanhood, and when Gregor (bug/man) finally dies she runs off to live her life and make babies. A metamorphosis of her own, if you will. I guess the moral of the story is not to live life only to work, because you might as well be a cockroach stuck in someone's house.
In a nutshell.

It's drawn on watercolor paper, worked up with watercolor/gouache, and finished in Photoshop. Let me know what y'all think. Thanks :)
