The Massacare of OZ / by Gaelan

As I have been cleaning and organizing my art stuff I came across this painting I did a few years back. It's a scene from 'The Wonderful Wizard of OZ' by L. Frank Baum where the wicked witch sends 40 wolves and 40 crows to basically kill and torture Dorthy and her friends. I remember I was reading the book to my son who was about four at the time and thinking how grizzly it seemed, even for a book written in 1900. For some reason I ended up doing my own W. W. Denslow inspired illustration to the passage. Prints can be made available for your own child's room. You sickos.
