For anyone who believes that James Joyce wrote Ulysses as an intellectual exercise designed to torture English majors, I appeal to you to re-read the last lines of this incredible story, which in my illustration form the wings of a butterfly emerging from a cocoon. The additional details of the illustration (the body, hindwings and the cocoon below) are formed from the dominant word in the monologue, "yes."
"I was a flower of the mountain yes when I put the rose in my hair like the andalusian girls used or shall I wear a red yes and how he kissed me under the moorish wall and I thought well as well him as another and then I asked him with my eyes to ask again yes and then he asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes and drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes."

HOW DO I SHIP:
I pack my artwork in a clear protective sleeve with a heavy piece of 4-ply backing board for added rigidity and giftable presentation. I hate getting curled up prints in the mail, so I've gone to great lengths to ship flat in a rugged photo mailer that was custom-made in the US to my specifications, so it fits the artwork perfectly. The snug fit ensures that the artwork is as well protected as possible.
This is original artwork by Obvious State that is not endorsed by or affiliated with James Joyce.
