Posts Tagged ‘dystopian’

Had this phone conversation the other night. Something he said had really disturbed me.

I’m not going to reveal my age, but let’s just say that if I had wanted a child, time is running out. Got to thinking about how fast life goes by, and with that, it hit me unexpectedly hard. Strangely, I started to ponder…what it would like to be a mother. Then I got depressed about how much was wasted in relationships that went nowhere, etc. You see, life is too short after all.

I began drawing this personal piece. Decided to call it ‘Mother’ for now, although ‘Mother Destruction’ fits better. It also came to mind cause Mother Destruction is also a name of a Neofolk/Electronica band. The dystopian elements were added after listening to Sopor Aeternus during the afternoon. Not music to play where you’re feeling particularly moody, but it proved to be a good influence on this drawing :
