Finally got around to drawing my Moon team! We’re starting out with Senketsu (yes, laugh all you want fasdljg) and André!

Senketsu (Sen, for short) is the owner of a pawn shop in Konikoni City who collects watches and clocks as a hobby! André works in the shop with Sen and is also a former trial captain whom Sen idolized when they were younger. Like…Sen was his biggest fan.

Even after 30 years of being married to André, he still takes the chance to take photos like this to remember the good ol’ days as a fanboy. André doesn’t mind at all and finds this adorable.

André Masson’s “Battle of Fishes”

André Masson was best known for his works in Surrealism, using drugs or losing sleep to create works that tapped into his unconscious. Masson started experimenting with sand in the 1920’s. Battle of the Fishes was one of these works, where Masson applied gesso to the canvas and threw sand on it, resulting in contours that suggest forms, “although almost always irrational ones.” Masson was born on this day in 1896.

‘The Shadow (Pink freud and the Pleasant Horizon)’ by Andre Von Morisse

Defined by a unique creative process, the hyper-real compositions of Andre Von Morisse reinvent traditional boundaries between painting and photography. Often using paintings as the starting point for an elaborate photographic process, Von Morisse is influenced by everything from Manet and pop culture to retro futurism and sci-fi landscapes. This surreal image is from a series entitled Pink Freud and the Pleasant Horizon, which consists of six photographs of paintings the artist first executed in black and white.
