The image was inspired by the song "Under" by the electronica artist Sampha from his album Process. I also wanted an excuse to do more graffiti art. I wanted to give bubble graffiti art style a try this time around. I was initially going to illustrate a mermaid character but, decided to draw a cute witch instead.

Ned Kelly emerged from the forest at Glenrowan behind the police lines in the early morning of June 28th, 1880 in an attempt to get back to his gang at the inn. Dressed in his armour he fought the police for half an hour single-handed before he was brought down by buckshot to his exposed knee.

Joe Byrne was Ned Kelly's best friend and a member of the Kelly Gang. His knack for language was demonstrated in his ability to speak Cantonese and write song lyrics. He transcribed all of Ned's letters and was his most trusted ally. Unfortunately he was also an opium addict who turned on his childhood friend, murdering him in cold blood before dying himself at the siege of Glenrowan.
