Roy is fairly new to Redbubble… but from the moment i discovered his work i have been in awe of his inpired, unique, honest and elightened imagery. Each one of his images demands both attention and reflection. In Roy’s self portraits he shares with us all the myriad of emotions each one of us experiences within ourselves.”Thanks for stopping by and look into my world for a minute.

Thank you so much Butchart :)

Inspired by King Crimson – 21st Century Schizoid Man

Lyrics

Cats foot iron claw
Neuro-surgeons scream for more
At paranoias poison door.
Twenty first century schizoid man.

Blood rack barbed wire
Polititians funeral pyre
Innocents raped with napalm fire
Twenty first century schizoid man.

Death seed blind mans greed
Poets starving children bleed
Nothing hes got he really needs
Twenty first century schizoid man.

From a series where I work to express the deepest emotions, both positive and “negative”. Armed with my Nikon D300 and a flashlight. I try to keep the Photoshop-work to a minimum to not loose the ethereal energy the method some times captures.

This is my way to healing and selfrealization. If my work can give something to an other human being it is twice worth the effort.
