“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

"NOT SINCE I WAS TWLEVE..."_update

[11 x 14" - blue pencil, brush & technical pen on 100lb/300series bristol board]



Oh no, love - you're not alone.
You're watching yourself, but you're too unfair.
You've got your head all tangled up, but if I could
only make you care.


Oh no, love - you're not alone.
No matter what or who you've been, 
No matter when or where you've seen.
All the knives seem to lacerate your brain.
I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain.


You're not alone.

I come here often, not just to see what's new, but to look at this haunting beauty. Easily one of my favourites.
