Ok first one died out 'coz of being idle for too long... Ok here i go again. First and foremost i'm gonna re-upload everything previously uploaded (most of them really old (as in 10 years) and unfinished) on my first thread and then we'll go on to the more recent ones eh? Let's start....
A barely old one first: TMWKNTMIKU...
TMWKNTMIKU (The More We Kill Nature, The More It Kills Us)
"Stasis - a period or a state of inactivity". Such is the fate of good old 'The More We Kill Nature...' here, an artwork symbolic of the impending doom that our race and environment is facing. This is an illustration i made back in early 2007 depicting a gruesome image of death, devastation, and corruption. Somewhere along the way, this particular artwork ended up on the stasis chamber... unfinished.
As familiar as it looks, this illustration is a sequel to an ancient work of mine - Enviro Affinity. It features the same characters, the treant and the female elf, now depicted in a terribly corrupted state. While Enviro Affinity evokes a pleasant image of harmony between humanity (as represented by the elven lady) and nature (represented by the treant), The More We Kill nature delivers a darker message. The depiction of death in this illustration does not only tell us about the death of a single being, but the death of a whole race, of nature, of an ideal, and of the planet itself.
Tons of details can hardly be seen in these photographs, but for a rundown about the visuals and the intended outcome of the artwork:
-the treant should occupy most of the space on the paper, he should look like a huge horror of swirling vines and briars with humanoid bodies tangled within.
-the elf, now naked and hideous, should be drawn standing on the treant's hand.
-a dead landscape for the background, with carrion birds flying around
But then again, the background went unfinished...
Most of the parts (the whole treant part) of this unfinished artwork was done for about a week during 2007, the trees seen on the background was quickly done just a few months ago (February) on a bus ride to somewhere where i did charity. So yeah, stasis for 2 years.
Being drawn on fine paper, i had no choice but to frame this artwork since it was needed for a then-upcoming exhibit. Now that it's sealed in a frame, this particular artwork will remain in stasis forever.
The More We Kill Nature, The More It Kills Us is a graphite illustration drawn on a soft and thin paper surface.
NOTE: This image ain't a scan, the artwork doesn't fit on the standard scanner.
