“The Darkness” May 19, 2012

This piece was inspired by a comic included in the first Pencil Fight compilation, also scavenged from the same used book store as the Fuchsia Galactica piece previously posted. In the comic, a young girl and her mother live together in a water tower in constant fear of “the darkness”. When the mother takes off her protective cloak, she is consumed by “the darkness” and begins to act evil toward her child, who eventually grows wings and flies away. The illustrations matching this twisted fairy tale are similarly disturbing, so I cut out the most interesting panels (as well as some other creepy images from the compilation) and painted this pale-faced, shadowy figure over them.
