Here's a digital doodle I did this week for a friend's birthday, inspired by Mathias Malzieu's novel The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart. The book is a wonderful twisted adult fairy tale, featuring an outcast child kept alive by clockwork, with plenty of dark humour and a gleeful gothic bent. Quite unwittingly, my version seems to feature a Harold and Maude era Bud Cort in the title role, but since he'd have been pretty much perfect casting, I don't mind that at all.
