Mister Duck Fantastic

My Donald Duck adventure is about to begin, so it doesn't hurt to do a few stretches with the main character. I intentionally kept the drawing itself very rough in order to keep the line quality as close as possible to the preliminary drawing.

Freely adapted from Pino Pascali

Being the huge Pino Pascali (1935 - 1968) fan that I am, the 'Vedova Blu' got me to do this one here, recently.

I consider these works of mine as pop-art in reverse. I take something purely high-brow and transmute it into a mass culture thing.

There's a giant rubber duck in the green room!

Donald Duck's green room demands are always as follows, a giant rubber duck shaped sofa, solid Wi-Fi and some snacks and sodas.
