The girl who turned into a bed by aiki-ame The girl who turned into a bed by aiki-ame
This is for my illustration assignment where we have to draw two illustrations depicting a poem. The poem i chose was Tim Burton's The Girl Who Turned Into a Bed:

It happened that day
she picked up a strange pussy willow.
Her head swelled up white
and a soft as a pillow.

Her skin, which had turned
all flaky and rotten,
was now replaced
with 100% cotton.

Through her organs and torso
she sprouted like wings,
a beautiful set
of matress and springs.


It was so terribly strange
that I started to weep.
But at least after that
I had a nice place to sleep



i've adopted a more cartoony style coz our tutor didn't like manga....he said "all manga girls have big empty eyes that look like they stare into nothing." WTFLOL.......

All done in watercolor (very expensive too. lol) and took me two whole days...>A<;; original size of each is A3.

Quite an interesting poem. It's so...playful and strange. XD

I think you depicted it very well. :) And your tutor's comment made me smile.

I was seriously thinking about the poem when I saw this, and when I saw that you drew this to fit the poem I started laughing and smiling like a dork.

Very amazing! :D

Wow this is amazing! I love how you drew this based off of the poem Tim Burton did~ The concept is glorious and the art is to die for :) Also, don't feel too discouraged about what your tutor said. I've faced many art teachers who don't like manga either and say that the art style is either "wrong" or "isn't real art." I just ignore them, and give them what they want for the assignment so that they can be quiet and not criticize so much. Great job and I hope to see more from you soon~ :D

I stared at this picture for so long trying to figure out what was going on. I was all: "Why the hell was the cat looking down and is now looking up? Whhhhaaat." And then, I thought, maybe she explains it in the artist comment. So, I scrolled down and saw a poem. Read it and then was all: "Oh. OH! Okay, that makes more sense." lol It's a beautiful picture by the way! ^^
