Wasteland by Tom Godfrey

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

The amorphous blobs moaned softly as they heaved themselves over the wastelands. Grimacing in pain, their jelly bodies distorted like soggy washing twisting helplessly in a relentless cycle. The effort required, as they tried to cross the hellish surface, to reach the floaters, was enormous. They had limited time before the nutrient rich red fruit would sink again, beneath the wasted poisoned surface. The next flowering was too far off, they had to reach them.

The giant mushroom beacon set up aeons ago, still pulsed out its call, searching the heavens for help. Global warming indeed. They had laughed at the notion. Scientists scoffed and politicians were mandated to keep the “train” rolling along. They partied on until… too little, too late and system collapse. The delicate biosphere could not sustain life, in the way it had for millennia, and only the luckiest sentient beings had managed, with a little genetic tinkering, to preserve life. People and jellyfish. Who would have thought it possible? Death would have been preferable, thought Gelatinous, the leader of their little band, as even now he sensed that the floaters had reached their zenith…

Wasteland Walkers

My artwork ranges from the traditional, to the slightly offbeat.

With the wildlife and landscape, paintings, I like a more photo-realistic approach, with light, colour, emotion and a sense of space, being key components.

My cartoons are a little quirky, with themes and styles varying according to mood.

    they look agonised and while death may seem preferable, there is still the will to live even in tortuous circumstances!!! Environmental pergatory indeed.

  • thanks Anne. Amazing but true. One thinks of the concentration camps, etc. that people endure, just to be!

    So, it comes down to humans and jellyfish. My money’s on the jellyfish. I’m always impressed with the way you create these wonderful pictures Tom, you are a wizard with light, shapes, textures and many other things.

  • LOL Of course, to call someone spineless in this world might not work so well. :) Thanks as always Mr ego puffer :) You are a tonic.
