This illustration has sold several times and has always been one of my favorites. An art director asked me to paint a picture that illustrated the futility of chasing after money. I immediately thought of one of literature’s most famous lunatics—crazy old Don Quixote—tilting at windmills in the belief that they were evil giants. Quixote believed it was his responsibility to rid the world of them. In my picture I decided to incorporate money into the scene by adding currency to the windmills.
The story of Don Quixote has inspired many artists, none more esteemed than Picasso
who created dozens of paintings based on this fictional Spanish knight. My illustration is included on Business Fundamentals, my royalty free art CD.
