Here’s my first attempt with acrylic paints, it’s still a work in progress, but I have no idea when I’ll get to finish it, so I’m sharing it now. Inspired by 1970’s paperback science fiction covers.
Just a coloured design for a recurring character of mine.
My closest friend and I as our true selves.
I don’t think I’ve ever drawn something personal or expressive before, but here we go.
This is a concept that I keep returning to in my dreams. It began when I was listening to Lustmord as I travelled through the city at that time of day when it’s so bright everything seems to shimmer. There’s something beautiful yet haunting about it. Horror doesn’t only happen in the dark. I envisioned this utopian city that was for some reason uninhabited. Humanity had reached its peak and then they inexplicably disappeared, leaving only their predecessors and descendants behind. These two in particular are on a journey to find the human race, during which they discover they have a lot in common.
