The Tree Man

The Tree Man is an amazing artwork and concept by Netherlandish master Hieronymus Bosch.
I got this giant book of prints and drawings from the Hamilton Library (yes, the same library where 2 gangs started a fight last week and at the end 4 were arrested), and I couldn't help trying to copy the Tree Man and a couple of other drawings and paintings.
The version I chose is pen and bistre, later adapted by Bosch into the right panel of his Garden of Earthly Delights.


  1. I love how there are so many small stories going on in this image. Especially like the boat shoes - very handy for crossing puddles with!

  2. This is a wild picture--I hadn't thought about Bosch in years. It's so much in the vein of the rest of your drawings--which are also wild. Very fun. Great details.

  3. Hi Elena,

    The work is esthetically pleasing.
    Is there a software that can make a pic like this?
