    wow john, this is so good. the quote is perfect, is it yours?
    I think about that in same sort of way so often, It reminds me of something i came up with quite a while ago that is sort of similar, i view life as a video game rather than a book and it ends a very similar way your last line does, it’s quite elaborate and long though and would take up a shit load of space to write it all out here, i’ll have to write it down one day with one of my works and see what you think of it, if only i could summerise it so perfectly the way it has been here. i’m glad i read this fantastic quote and saw your inner sanctum.

  • Hi Daniel, It’s a quote that I had concocted in my story " For Love And Anarchy" and I thought it was fitting to use it in reference to this piece which perfectly sums up my feelings at the time I drew this. The Inner Sanctum is a pure metaphysical manifestation of my subconscious.

    This is your place, love the feeling, good complexity to the scene. It’s a tranquil place and you own it! As you can go there to seek solace or an escape. The skull and the coffee mug are nice touch to your private sanctuary. :)

  • Ming, You are right! :) It is a private sanctuary of the subconscious, a metaphysical manifestation which is a place where I can sometimes escape the harshness of reality and find peace and tranquility. I like how you mentioned the skull and the coffee mug. :))))

  • Thanks Fred. There’s a bit of everything about me in this composition right down to the coffee and the umbrella.

  • Yes, Raphael was a beautiful man who painted the most beautiful angels. More so than Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo. I think he was so underrated too.
