We did this artwork today – computer graphic done in Corel Draw 9. It is not as we “envisioned” it (in that it is just in Black and White and done more like a charcoal pencil). We may do that sometime – try to duplicate what is in our head with a charcoal pencil. Well, here goes:
There is something missing from this but we don’t know what it is. Think it must be a part of ourselves. Or maybe it represents a part of ourselves. Or maybe it IS parts of ourselves – either coming together or flying apart but that’s not the impression I get while doing it.
I get the impression of knives stabbing at the boy.
Parts of myself perhaps attacking him sometime
and he is sleeping but NOT – quite wide aware. And yet he lurks inside of us: hurt sometimes, but not so lonely as he once was (see that place in our pictures, the “Ice World” featured somewhere on our blogs . . . often used in our Shop of Horrors to represent him – and ‘his’ past.)
This could also represent the abuse the world heaps on us; each and every one (That includes YOU, dear reader): born into this world ‘asleep’ in innocence – until the world begins to intrude in, turning your world upside down . . . putting YOU to sleep . . .
and the inner child within.
Enjoy. And remember:
Perhaps it just means nothing at all; a fiction in our heads. Anyway – have fun with it . . . make of it what you will.
(Done in CorelDraw 9, vector art, with a bitmap insert copped off the web)
