Curse you Guybrush Threepwood by neomonki Curse you Guybrush Threepwood by neomonki
Something I've been slaving over the past few days. All this Double Fine news got me replaying all 5 Monkey Island games again which spurned this thing. Probably the most ambitious thing I've ever painted in a looooong time. I'll probably go back and try and pull out some of the ghosts behind LeChuck some more since they got a bit lost when I started attacking it with colour effects and textures.

Anyway. YAY!

My boyfriend bought this for me at Anime North in the artist's alley over a year ago and it is still by far my favourite fan art of Monkey Island. Ever.

I'm so happy I found who made it, it's wonderful and is on my wall and it makes me smile every day! <3

This is fantastic!! :) I love the detail you put in to everything. The soft rolling waves on the bottom of the picture, all the great lovably drawn characters, a subtle mix of events from all the games. It's going straight in my favs!

Wow, talk about a weird coincidence. I posted this artwork on my blog over 2 weeks ago and this past weekend, I was at the fan expo and I bought this poster without even realizing it was the same artwork. The piece just caught my eye as I passed by and I had to buy it. I guess I really like this piece. Cause it grabbed me twice!

Getting the poster framed as soon as possible. Thank!

Ah yes Monkey Island, been so long since i played one, still rember Day of the Tentacle tho.
Just picked up Escape from Minkey Island yesterday and man its old looking but i love it....dont think i played that one...cant rember which i did.
Double Fine makes some amazing games, wish he would have a boundle release of the old ones like Day of the Tentacle, Monkey Islands and some of the new ones for the PC...loved the Brutal Legend and psychonauts as well.

Oh yeah art, sorry, Love the poster, the charthers are repsented well and in a fun format, piler style, the soft painting makes it close to what the orginal box art was.
Very nice job!

Monekey island is what we are on.
This is what i interpret this as.

The picture says more then just a guy on an island. Sure we are all like this, but if you had him in the middle of it with an arm around something good and bad that would more realistic.
But mabye this isn't you looking at everyone, but rather you not chosing to rock the island by making a choice.
We all have voices and make decisions from what we have. It's just how far you would like to go in it, that shows you the truth.
To be a puppet, or act, to see it through a blind eye, or to just sit and wait.
The perfect girl and the best life may be perfect for you, but something tell me you would end up just like the skeleton looking down on everyone like the world that we live in. But mabye you just need to take a chance and risk it all because you can't relate to anything around you anymore and have to find your own truth.

I love it. Because it's a great to look at someone else who sees the true monkey island. Well done :)
