the Fairy is a Gangsta, yo by JessiBeans the Fairy is a Gangsta, yo by JessiBeans
A multifold purpose piece, for use at the convention on banners and promo things, for the Conceptart.org weekly character challenge (to design "a gangster and his moll"), and to get me back in touch with my pencils and the sweet, sweet lines we make together.

If there are good fairies and bad fairies, these two are definitely the latter. They had a plan to keep the neighborhood under thumb and keep themselves well stocked in gold -- golden honey, that is. (honey bags, you know, instead of money bags? get it? bwahahaa!)

Prints available at FaerieCon Intl. 2007 in Philadelphia, PA (October 12-14)

2H and HB pencil on Bristol Board (11" x 14")
Colored in Photoshop CS3 with my preciousssssss...

I love the entire piece but especially the bee's speech bubble,the description reminds me of the song "Master of the House" from Les Miserables

I like this. This puts me in mind of a short story called "Teeth" in one of those best fantasy collections, and it was about the darker side of the Tooth Fairies.

In a nutshell, certain mafia fairies owned the market on the tooth industry and would rule it with swift and blinding violence.

I love the colors and the expressions.
