i know.
it's a piece of shit drawing.
but it's heartfelt.
actually,'s even deeper than that.
and i know.
some of you understand.
you don't gotta comment on it.
but if you feel it.
that's enough.
that's more than enough.
just feel it.
and then let it go.

if you can.

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-02-27
Amidst the haze, its length and breadth furthermore accentuates the notion of rejuvenation, a juxtaposition of weight at the heart giving rise to a solemn, dignified triumph. Please enjoy midnight opens it's arms to me by `dholms. ( Suggested by wroth and Featured by snowmask )
Wow, This is an amazing piece. Looking at it, I feel the mans misery or feelings of giving up...In my opinion, the black cat really adds to the piece because of its positive correlation with bad luck. You did a good job at making the man look realistic..the only thing I might suggest is for you to blend out your tones little bit more. However, that is all subjective. It was a good choice to do the piece in black and white..i think it adds to the mood. I'd love to see more of your art, keep up the good work!

I like the whole image, the cat seems a bit darker than all of it. I feel the scene in my bones, but the cats gaze cuts deeper than that. :)

I saw this picture what seems like centuries ago, and I got that feeling from it-- it just clicked, you know? I could feel how much was put into it, not just effort but soul. Now finding it here, I understand why :) Your work is always so beautiful!
