Voodoo Love

This spring I was one of 50 artists worldwide invited to contribute a piece for the Argentine art magazine GÖOO. The theme for the issue was "brujeŕia" (witchcraft), so I came up with this little cautionary tale. Basically, you should be careful how ya treat the ladies, 'cause one of these days you might cross the wrong one. Göoo #7 will be available at göoo's booth this weekend at the MAD 009 Design Festival, held at the Palacio de Congresos, Madrid.

Find out more @ the GÖOO blog!

Here's some of my rough sketches and an almost-final version
before some last minute tweaks:

Originally I had planned on doing a vertical piece, but when I found out the magazine's format called for double-page spreads, I had to change things quickly...

You can probably see where the schoolgirl exploration I posted a few months back came from. Almost there, but not saucy enuff...

Pretty close to the final, but she looked too pleasant... not "wicked"
enough. The doll went through some various versions, too.

Here's a pic of the print version. Maybe next time
I'll do better planning for that double-page spread :P

(Thanks for putting up with the long delay in posting this one.
Had to wait for publication B4 sharing)
