The Shallow Lagoon

We call our house the Black Lagoon. You see two years ago we purchased our first home. My wife was thrilled by the very large pool in the back yard, I wasn’t. Anyway in all of our painting, unpacking, and all of the other chaos that happens when you move into your first home I kind of forgot about the pool. On top of that the pool filter broke. Needless to say that our pool quickly turned green; thus we started calling our house the Black Lagoon. Even now long after the pool has been cleaned we still call our house the Black Lagoon.

When Caanan Grall was raising money to get his first Max Overacts book published I was lucky enough to have some money saved up and was able to get one of the higher rewards. Then I was torn for like two weeks. I was getting a nice sized commission from one of my favorite artists, what should I ask for? The idea of mashing up the Max cast with the Creature from the Black Lagoon came to me while I was driving home from work. As soon as the idea was in my head I knew that it would turn out incredible.

I haven’t gotten a chance to frame it yet, but I will. I already have a spot picked out where it is going too. See when you first enter my house, the first thing you see is a Creature from the Black Lagoon poster. The Creature of the Shallow Lagoon is going to go on that same wall, either above or below the Black Lagoon poster (I haven’t determined which way looks better yet). I love this piece so much I’m not really sure why I haven’t shared it on the website yet. I’m already saving my money for his next book drive.
