"Candy Cane Man"
by sabine7 / August 7, 2007
“...is sad because he has spent his entire life striped like a candy cane (would prefer a less seasonal distinction)...”


Illustrator Shannon Bonatakis grew up in a haunted house and today claims that something is living in her freezer, so her narrative paintings are just as chock full of atmosphere as one would expect. A lot of Bonatakis’ work is in the area of children’s illustration, but her paintings demonstrate a side that is a lot less cute. The Candy Cane Man looks so unhappy with his lot that one can’t help but think there’s more to his problems than simply the seasonal issue.
