Here is a drawing I made entitled "Redemption": Click for a full view!
I am currently accepting commissions and art exchanges :)
To A Metal Lover
Am I so constant as the falling rain
That pours in sheets of milky velveteen
And lolls, roll ebbing roll, along the veins
And currents of thy lovely metal sheen?
The rain to fall upon thy shadowed eyes
And writhe its frosted fingers delicate
Along thy mouth: such burning splendour lies
‘Twixt shards and mirrors steeped immaculate.
But thou wouldst wither at my fondest touch –
As among the flames of sweetest sunder
A man once died – but divinely such
The cross did burn, and cast, sweet surrender.
For thou art false, yet further falser still
The heart that loves thy silver metal will.
It's supposed to be Shakespearean-like :D
Sorry if I'm bombarding you with Silver fiction... I was just rereading it again today. And it hits me the same way every time, too.
So yeah.... new layout! It's so bright is cares me, haha. I'm usually a fan of dark, nebulous things, so bright coloured stripes are quite a change...
I'm trying to find a direction in life now, people are always telling me "why don't you study art?" Of course I love art and writing and all that jazz. But art doesn't pay, nor does it guarantee social status. When you're starving in the dark one day, regretting your university "degree", regretting your wasted youth.... how inspirational can you get? On the other hand, who wants to work in a job they don't like? Perhaps I shall turn to music.
