I know I haven't been posting for some time. Life's been busy as hell. Aside from attending a fairly demanding school program, I've also been collaborating with ~nuu on a short comic and taking on various small projects here and there, so I didn't quite find the time to do personal artwork in the past few months.

My inbox is pretty jammed right now. For those of you who asked me questions (either through comments or notes) in the past 2 months, are you still interested in my replies? My two-month-late replies won't weird you out, will they? ^^;

You do a lot of rather dark work, but it never exhausts itself. It's always something interesting. This one is a particularly fascinating concept, and I love the subtle red hues.

I love the way you drew out the concept, which I suppose is different for everyone.
I'm curious what your thoughts for the concept behind this beautiful piece of art would be.
Would you mind sharing so?

Thanks.
Oftentimes the society expects us to say (or do) certain things in certain situations, and I find it quite painful to follow these social expectations when they conflict with my personal thoughts.
Most of us probably don't lie outrageously, but we often make little twists to the truths just so that things can progress more smoothly with people. I don't know about others, but for me, each time I make a little lie, I feel a little bit of guilt, which builds up over time and hurts me. That's what I had in mind when I painted this.

I know exactly what you mean. Was talking about this with my mom last week. It's sad, that the guilt slips in.
However, imagine what this place would have looked like without the little twists to the truth and the progress what only the truth, nothing but the truth and any dose of bullshit would be punished in a more conveying way then the present now. The thing I was reading was this article that in a average conversation, within a few minutes already white lies where in the air.

Awesome! Do I detect a Michael Hussar influence perhaps?
Reply

mou-s Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
I really don't know. Maybe there's a subconscious influence as I've seen his works before painting this, but his art does scare me...(can't handle gore)

His stuff is rather creepy. Maybe it's just the colour scheme that reminds me. Either way I find this picture both disturbing and very very cool...
