Pink, Pot, Hat

'Pink Panther With Moka Pot Hat', colour drawing (2023).

This is an all new version. I already showed you the Salvador Dali inspired donut hat piece here — actually I think I started with a breakfast bagel and turned it into a pink donut then — however, this time it's a moka pot. As before the Pink Panther character functions as the artistic catalyzer. The panther is Dali, on the grounds that the Pink Panther always made use of irrational, grotesque and surreal themes a lot.
