Don Justino sits aloof, all in black, a dog in a silk bow at his feet. I stared into his beautiful face and knew he would kick that dog hard – and enjoy it. His eyes tell me it’s his right as a beautiful and stylish man to cause pain; if women are drawn to him and destroyed, it’s their own fault: they know they should keep away. He has existed throughout time and will never disappear, unless, next time you meet him, you kick him first. Kick him to the kerb and walk swiftly on. I used hand-drawn 2D animation and Adobe After Effects.
A piece inspired by Murillo, Portrait of Don Justino de Neve, 1665
