"Some Like It Hot" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)
This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was "Fire/Flames."

I struggled to come up with something for this theme. In the end, I had to enforce a time limit on myself, and declare "paint brush down!" (I'm not completely satisfied with how this piece came out.)

I created this using GIMP 2.8.16.

The words are from the song Some Like It Hot by Robert Palmer.

The Devil is from the Codex Gigas (the Devil's Bible). (Note: I added the tail and the fire in his hand.)

The "Rocket Bird" and fires/flames are from the Franz Helm "Rocket Cat" Manuscript.

The vintage images are from an Internet search. (See the side of my blog for links.)

The font is Cambria Bold.
