CHECK

About a couple of years ago I had this idea for a drawing, a miserable king playing chess, with a monkey about to take his crown off. An idea that was born after a conversation with a client and that stuck with me for a very long time.
The composition had very specific meanings but unfortunately I didn’t write any of them down, the only thing that remained was the image itself and lately I’ve decided to bring it to life, convinced that sooner or later those meanings will come back to my mind.

Now that the drawing is done I realize that the background is a bit poor and should possibly be enriched with a window and the head of a dragon looking inside, but for this addition I’m going to wait for someone interested in the design, on which I will apply a 15% discount should they decide to get it tattooed 😉

Let me know what you think in the comments 😉
