Pokemon Battle Royale!


The Pokémon Battle Royale show at Light Grey Art Lab opens this friday! Here's my Drowzee! (who I kept on my Leaf Green team almost solely because I loved the noise he made)

Apparently Drowzee is based on the looks & psychic powers of the Japanese Baku spirit: a dream-devouring tapir-like creature. Spooky! I wanted to show Drowzee in more of an environment, and although Drowzee is a primarily a grassland pokemon he is also sometimes found in ancient ruins and tombs. Paying homage to Drowzee's scarier mythological counterpart in a crumbling temple seemed appropriate!

I have a limited edition of 15 prints for sale at the show. I wish I could go, There's gonna be so much fun art from 151+ (!) amazing contributors. Check it out if you're nearby!

I really love your entry, hits me on so many levels :) When I first saw it, it totally made me think of that first episode that drowzee appears in and how awesome it was that some Pokemon had actual psychic powers!
Also Im a little confused as to why this isnt on the site with all the other entries... its like the best one!

I found your site because this piece was the first in the Pokemon series that actually gave me pause to zoom in and just stare it at for a while in admiration! It's so beautiful, the whole thing looks like a dream itself and I'm excited to explore your other works now, too!! Thanks for sharing this!
