IF - Welcome

As a kid, I was fascinated by stories about Krishna. There was always an element of magic to whatever he did, or wherever he lived. I had listened to his stories numerous times, read a number of story books about him - all telling the same story, but I loved it. One of his stories has a huge snake, that comes to kill him.. And apparently to kill the snake, Krishna walks into the mouth of the snake, grows real huge in size and explodes right there!!

I was so fascinated by that, I imagined how it would be if there was a cave structure that was like a snake - or better, if we could all take a tour inside the snake anatomy!!!!

The stages:
This is my entry for Illustration Friday's 'Welcome' theme.

1) Does that frog have a flickr account where I could take a virtual tour ? :D

2) You should add some fine print about those who overstay the 'welcome' by cave 'closing time' :) :)

Very interesting indeed. It's both comical and twisted at the same time. The red eye of the snake is kinda frightening though ^^ And I like your work-in-progress pictures too :)
Thanks for your comments on my drawing Shalini, and and I glad that what I do is appreciated as well.

Thanks for sharing your thought process! There was a recent New Yorker cartoon about "welcome to Hell" that had the same ironic twist.
