    Your comments always take my perception of my art and my life to the next level. It makes me very proud and gives me energy. Thank you!
    Here is a special edition one, :lol:

    Drawn on a night where temperature didn't matter. Everything was still in my mind and I was present.
    I drew this, and it reminds me of something that is not so far away.

    NICE!!!! It reminds me a little of Ralph Steadman. Really expressive lines and the black on white is powerful. I can feel your subconscious speaking. It's a little eerie in a way, with all the symbolism, but then that's the language of the mind!

    Ralph Steadman! What a compliment! Wow.. I need to not let that one get to my head.. He's in my top 10 for sure!

    Wo!!! Glad to hear that. I'm a fan of Hunter S. Thompson, and I really like Steadman's work. I got a flash from your bird piece. Those birds in Fear and Loathing... You can practically hear the cawing in the splash of black ink.
    btw your reply to Gigaurora: "Your comments always take my perception of my art and my life to the next level. It makes me very proud and gives me energy. Thank you!" was what I thought about you! Thanks for helping me get through my artistic block, Deja Vu!!!

    My pleasure :) I havent done any good art in a while, been in a year-long block myself.. But this thread is doing something for my confidence that nothing else could do, and it's getting me to appreciate the visual imagery in my mind all over again which will inevitably lead to some beautiful artwork. Eveyrthing in this thread to me is considered Version 1 stuff. The old ages of my consciousness. Next level shit is in the making [​IMG]

    Deeper explanation. I was blazed off my nipples. I was huddled over in a drug den (you can see the ambient lighting on the page reflected from flickering lighters and the pale glow of the TV screen)
    Smoked lots of bongs, drew an all-killing all-consuming beast! Very spiritual :lol:

    and then 2 days later I read a poor girl's soul like an open book and transcribed this.

    these are awesome!! The drawing is really good and I like the pasting in of the random content. It would be cool for you to do more collaging with your drawing + the cut - out - of - context words. The message hits straight to the subconscious and can be interpreted uniquely by each viewer. It felt like both the message and the symbols were talking directly to me (hadn't even vape today yet).

    That's true for some. They feel they have no hope, as you said, " all the doors had been closed". That's the bottom line for some people, they have no support system or may not want any.

    If all the doors seem closed...that can be opportunity. To go inside and find a happiness that isn't so dependent on the outer world.

    I'm glad it impacted you two also. It holds a meaning to me as well, and was also created with the intention of holding a special meaning of all who read it.

    You might like to know that it was the first page of a book that i made called The Book of You which is incomplete, but still has a few pages that continue the effect of this page. It is about you specifically. Quite a magical thing to pull off, I was in a divine state of mind when I made it that's for sure haha. I'll find the other pages of it as soon as I can, but at the moment here is the 2nd page. Stay tuned for more please :) I'll tag you both when I find page 3.

    I feel like if I splash some water on it, the secret message will bloom right in front of me!

    Here's a digitally distorted image of me that I named 'Depression' (art was a way for me to deal with a bad break-up).

    You have the gift of visual explanation. Don't ever stop using it. It brightens up the world!

    Thanks for putting those up in such high resolution. Looked nice on my multi monitor setup :lol:
    I like them, and I enjoy their tone. It feels farminllar, as if they speak to me from an ancient Egyptian house or temple, which would be otherwise cold had it not be for a fire in the corner reflecting in their eyes and penetrating the surface layers of skin on their face and hands. All of the characters are crudely drawn, but show movement and natural body positioning that I imagine seeing in a surrealist's mind.
    Thank you again for sharing

    Thanks. Funny you mention the Egyptian theme....I'm trying to get this other one to upload from my phone (some minor technical difficulties here at work) that I felt was drawn on the Nile (called it "Faces appear and disappear in the Ocean of Birth and Death). Will attempt again.

    Nice title. Absolutely share it when you can! And thanks for livening up this thread with some other art. I know there are some other artist threads on here but I can't find them / they are not updated regularly or active anymore.

    I wrote a little thing about my obsession with my phone...

    Our phones are transforming us
    We now speak in acronyms: lols and wtfs,
    ignore spelling, let things go
    The mini-me that we can’t be without;
    a slender, elegant adjunct
    Responding to, reprocessing artfully and distributing externally –
    one’s own intelligence.
