I don't think i've ever done a piece of 'fan art' before, but there's a first time for everything, and the TV show Hannibal happened to be the one that inspired me to do so :)
The painting is based on a scene from season 2, episode 12 'Tome-wan', in which Hannibal serves Jack a symbolic dish of kholodets (a gross-looking arrangement of fish within a gelatin '3D canvas'). Jack looks at the fish and says it's hard to determine who is chasing who... to which Hannibal replies 'Whoever is pursuing whom in this very moment, I intend to eat them'... HA.
It's a whole Hannibal/Will/Jack thing, it probably won't make any sense to those of you who don't watch the show ;)
One of my favourite episodes for sure...
I would have loved to have spent more time on it, but there's so much going on that I don't think it would ever be ...
This piece is for Bryan Fuller, Martha de Laurentis, David Slade, Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy, Laurence Fishburne and ALL of the cast and crew who create such a beautiful and enthralling show. Thank you :)
Below: a slightly closer crop so you can see horrible fish-Hannibal, fish-Will and fish-Jack's faces :P
