Cedric is a very happy fish. Unfortunately though, he looks sad all the time. At least Cedric used to think that it was unfortunate but he no longer does. This is because everyone he meets, want to cheer him up and so he is told very funny jokes all the time, and that have him in stitches. Life on planet Dooda is very good, even for a sad looking fish like Cedric.
This piece was created in Corel Painter. It is based on images that I found in the wonderful book, ‘Painted Books From Mexico’. That book shows examples from the few books that survived the Spanish invasion of what is now Mexico. Most were burnt by Cortes and his cohorts, which is such a shame as the art in them is so beautiful. I thoroughly enjoyed making this piece and playing within each section of it.
