DescriptionThis iillustration was originally commisioned as a magazine cover for a feature on the Popobawa, the Batman of Zanzibar. The appearance of this phenomena seems to occur during times of national stress and political upheaval. It has been suggested that sightings of Popobawa are a manifestation of mass hysteria born out of rising anxiety during times of unrest. The Popobawa is thought to stalk the rooftops of Stonetown, swooping down to assault men in their sleep. 3D CGI render with digital painting.
