Inevitable - The Red 5 by graffitica Inevitable - The Red 5 by graffitica
...they huddle closely together underneath a large tree for warmth. A fresh snow covers the landscape and the cold is bracing. Exhausted from running all night, pausing for a brief moment to watch the sun as it rises over the hills.

The stench of death still clinging to their nostrils. Bodies strewn across the cold ground like breadcrumbs tossed out for birds. The creeping pestilence showing no mercy, to no one, and to nothing. Houses and towns destroyed, wretched and broken.

The quiet is almost too much for them to bear, waiting silently as it slithers ever closer. No where to go and no one to save them.....

I like the abstract-jigsaw skyline that you made for these. Very unique. This one is my favorite of The Red series.

Thanks very much. The jigsaw pieces are a 'signature' of sorts in my work. They are very prevalent in my older, more colorful pieces. The feedback and the faves are greatly appreciated! :aww:

I'm glad to see you've written a piece to go with this. Helps the journey along. You definitely captured the feeling here, the character whom have seemingly found a safe place to relax, and that red slowly sneaking forward. Awesome.

The written work was accidental. I literally scrawled it out on a scrap of paper sitting next to me on the table as I was putting the finishing touches on this piece. The works in my series are not in any sort of order, so it allows others to make up their own story in a way, and I like that.

Ah, I see. Cool. I like doing things that way as well as sometimes it gives myself insight to pieces that I did not think about while drawing, but now defines it.

Love the creepiness of these drawings c:
I especially like the foreground in this one, it seems so distorted :)

Wow, thank you! :D Very kind of you to say. I just draw what I see in my head, and that is tough to do sometimes. I've been lucky enough that this series has turned out just how I wanted so far.

It sure can be tough to get the idea on paper, but maybe you just had a really clear vision of this and that's why it has turned out so great :)

whoa! nice story with this red stuff...i love it! i am also loving your mix of tha thin scratchy lines along side of your other style and using that style for tha sky is genius :D

Thanks so much! :hug: Really glad to be hearing such positive feedback from my little series. Everyone has been really digging it as much as I am, and that is awesome! The scratchy style is really growing on me and I could sit and draw landscapes all day if I had the time. But, I have to keep my mosaic backgrounds in my work bc it's what I'm known for. Genius is a heavy word to be throwing around! :XD:

ThaBleakUgly Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012
i'll throw what i want!!! :XD: this one in particular with tha way you described things in tha story part reminds of things i see that i attempt to draw or write about...but all of your red series stuff visually reminds me of those things...kinda makes me fell less alone in things i see...it is seriously rare i feel any artist (or anyone at all) even slightly sees anything like tha things i see

lmao! :XD: Fine, throw the damn thing!

Like I was telling someone else earlier, this piece was envisioned while sleeping last night....and most of the others in the series were as well. I woke up out of a dead sleep at 4am, jumped out of bed, fumbled around for a pencil and a scrap of paper on my desk, and sketched out the image using the light of my cell phone. The written part came to me as I was coloring in the sky for this piece and I scratched it out really quick on the back of a notebook laying on the table. I see shit like this so vividly....don't know how to explain it.

You really should put your stuff on paper, let it flow. That's why my stuff is random.....if I plan out a piece I get in my own way.

That is some deep stuff my friend! :hug: I'm extremely flattered that my art is helping you connect in some way to someone. Don't know what to say.... :blush:

Nice, I'm glad I'm not the only one! :D

Thank you! :D The story came to me as vividly as the image for this piece did. Scratched it out with my Sharpie pen on the cover of a notebook as I was coloring the sky.

Haha! I guess it would be a pretty cool blacklight poster. XD
