2D Forever

Gas masks scare me. It only takes a thought about their purpose. However, whilst researching for this picture it would appear a lot of people have a fetish for gas masks. I couldn’t say why, but I guess that’s why they’re called fetishes. Each to their own!

With this, I wanted something so normal (or rather so retro) as a husband kissing his wife before leaving the home but put an odd spin on it. Gas masks were the first thing that came to mind – you certainly can’t kiss anyone whilst wearing them. As for the surrounding, well everything’s post-apocalyptic these days so let’s assume the world’s end is nigh here. Taking something so odd and having to deal with it like it’s the norm.

I guess the idea came from playing Half-Life 2 for the first time. Those CP’s aren’t your friends. And maybe a bit of Call of Duty 4, good game, but sick.

On a brighter note, you could say this shows love conquering all! Yes, I’ll leave it as that.

    love the shading, the shadows. that little heart is perfect too, because it just seems so out of place, while youve made the gas-masks almost familiar. like i should expect it. i love how the woman has her hands as well…like she wants to reach out and make more of a connection with the guy (her husband, i hope, but maybe not for a more interesting story) yet he seems so far away, melting into the shadows with his black suit. its also interesting how you have it so that hes not trying to make an effort to connect with her. maybe hes not even really off to work? gosh i love how this makes me think of stories…great job again

    Love this! The contrast of your Norman Rockwell type characters with the gas masks and decaying background…very effective!
