Rape Rick Rhinestones Closeup

A2 version based on my Rape Taxi Sketch.

This drawing is about my anxiety when travelling at night on public transport.
My mother every now and then cuts out articles of rape just to show them to me, first thing in the morning.

I wanted the dark subject matter to look comedic, using colours painted on trucks, taxis and ricks.

I also wanted it to shimmer and be very glittery. 

You can’t tell from the scan, but the flowers have gold glitter on them. The text is coloured in with a red glitter pen, and the thick black lines with a black glitter pen. The glitter pens are quite subtle. Only when you move around do you see it glinting.

The glitter didn’t work on the heavily painted yellow acrylic but I bought these rhinestones you get to stick to bling up mobile phones and those worked well. (I scanned the piece before I stuck those on.)

I’m dying to glitter something else up.
