Can I borrow some sugar? by Octochimp Designs

Greeting Cards & Postcards

Available to buy on…

I am haunted, and yet myself a kind of demon.
I blame them not for what they do,
although they torture me.
They do only what I instruct.
One day I may ask them to pick me some flowers..
but not today.
I don’t yet know their word for ‘flowers’.

image notes:
I didn’t plan this one at all. Just started with the basics of a face and let the rest happen. I also made a point not to undo any mistakes so it’s pretty rough.

    Incredible stuff, Octo! I really like how you framed this one. I cool ethereal quality about it.

  • Glad you think so Mike. :) It’s nice to see something work out well when you just start without planning it.

    Did you write the poem as well?

  • Yeh, wrote it pretty quickly late on the night just as I was posting the work itself. Really as an after thought.
