"Who could hang a dead man's swing-set from the moon?
Yeah, you did
Then you gave it to the ghosts and the witches
Who can say goodbye... yeah, you did
With the promise that the dead are now magicians
You make traffic jams feel like parades
You bury the dead with the faith
That makes lightning bugs swarm
As if it was graduation"
Woo!! A piece of personal art that I managed to come up with and find the time to bring to life!
I've had this concept floating around in my head now for a week or so and I found some free time after Thanksgiving dinner to do it. I was up working on it until around three am that night. Yay for late night art rampages.
Anyway, this piece was inspired by a dead coyote that I found on the side of the road and the lyrics from Cloud Cult's song, Your 8th Birthday
. The colors in this turned out so delicious, I just want to eat them. :3
