Illustration inspired by Bali

My entry for Illustration Friday's theme this week : CRAVING

I created this illustration based on a Balinese mythology, inspired by my travels to the island of Bali. I was in Bali last April and I rented a small bungalow which resembles the one in my illustration below. This is an illustration of a Balinese witch who likes to devour children. In the myth, the Balinese children saved themselves from being eaten by dancing.

This illustration, in particular, is so interesting. Ilove the colors, the theme and the overall design.

Thanks too, for sharing all the wonderful photos from the BEA!

Wow Madonna, I really love the colors of this piece. Though I've never been to Bali, I think you've captured the lighting perfectly. You seem like in the mood to travel still. Are you getting married again, in LA?haha I think that would be a cool thing to do with your husband!hehe
