This is a painting I did for a gallery group show called "Remixing the Magic" at Gallery 1988 (last year). Artists were invited to re-interpret Disney characters based on their experiences and influences from the Disney films.
"Jungle Book" was one of my all time favorites. What I remember most was the blissful contentment of Mowgli and Baloo as they simply live off the land and the bond they have with each other. I chose to depict that quiet moment between the two as they past the hours away by the slow moving river in the late afternoon. I thought this would be appropriate for an i.f. post.
