“I have issues with abortion and overpopulation. By that I mean I can’t make up my mind on the subject and have very contradictory feelings and opinions when thinking about it. I hate humans, but I love people(does that make sense?). I love kids, but the thought of raising one in this day and age scares the shit outta me. Not to mention contributig to our biggest problem as a species—-there are just too many of us. The process of abortion seems logical in a lot of instances, but I would be lying if I said my personal involvement in the experience hasn’t sucked a good portion of my soul away….
and I happen to place a lot of value on my soul, goddammit!

    Cool – so much detail… is that mostly ink?

    Thanks. Most of the black lines in the sky is Sharpie…god bless those fuckin’ markers. The buildings portion is done with a mix of black acrylic paint and black ink mixed with good ol’ water and applied with a squeeze bottle that has a fine-tipped nozzle. The technique is very fun and satisfying.
