“Good morning, Miss Rat-shed!  How’s things on the outside!”

Hi again!

The image above is my rendition of what has been going on in the ward since McMurphy’s arrival.  He has riled up the patients and staff with his loud, outlandish behavior.  The patients admire his confidence and the excitement he brings to the ward.  Nurse Ratched and her staff keep a watchful eye and try to hinder his influence.  As time goes on, McMurphy learns more about the ward’s policies.  He makes a bet with the other patients that he can push Nurse Ratched over the edge.  The narrator, Chief Bromden, has been on the ward a long time.  He knows what ultimately happens to patients that resist Nurse Ratched’s system.  Nevertheless, he is hopeful.

Thanks for visiting.

    Unsurprisingly I love this! I was curious to see how the next scene would play, and this is just so good! I never thought I could love neon so much!

    I agree with Meg on the colors. It seems like those greens and purples shouldn’t work together but I think it creates a nice crazy tension. Great job!

    Man, these colors. I agree, they are loud and really great. And almost even more than those wild colors, I love the weird nonsensical space, the rounded elbows, and everyone’s different gestures around that table. Sweet work.

    I love everything about this! Everyone looks like they’re having such a good time. Well, except for The Chief and Nurse Ratched.
