Bob with Lightning 1984
In this image, I chose to give Bob strangely striped pants, mismatched shoes, and a disjointed stance, black snake hanging casually from his right hand, all of which support his being the awkward outsider. At the same time, I surrounded him with peculiar natural phenomena: a thin lightening bolt, a floppy, rubber like snake, the oddly threatening yellow cloud, and shadow with a life of its own. His chest glows and he peers intently out--we have no idea where, just that it's important. And it's clear to us that if the going gets any rougher, he has his lightening bolt, his snake, and his fierce cloud to help him find his way.
