This is one of my favorite quotes. I kid you not - I have a journal I kept of meaningful quotes from 2009, and I have this quote written in there. This art goes really well with it. The playing cards are an obvious choice for being in this piece, but that octopus. I wouldn't expect that, but now that's it's here, I can see how it fits.
The octopus is such a large, majestic, and powerful creature. It clearly is a dominant figure in this piece in both power and presence. Like Ursula from The Little Mermaid, she can be a dark, destructive creature, like cancer or tuberculosis. In addition, octupi are highly intelligent creatures, but are more often perceived as being powerful, manipulative or bent on domination. Just like the Joker, who is the source of that quote.
Good texture for digital work.
