Love Is Suicide by Shawn Coss

I know I know it’s been awhile but things have been going on so damn….

Seriously though, this is the piece that spawned the whole idea of my future series “Halos & Tragedies”.

With shit never working out the way you want it, your boss shits on everything you do,and you aren’t quite sure if the next day will be the last of having some financial support. It’s enough to want to drive a bullet through the brain and forget all the worries of the fellow man. And on top of all of that mess, you and your loved ones become nothing more than savages looking out for themselves.

The ones you “love” become your enemy, become the thorn that you refuse to withdraw, you realize the misery, you realize the suffering you both are going through, and maybe, just maybe the bullet won’t hurt so bad.

Maybe it will make it all better, maybe if that bullet enters the cranial cavity we won’t be thinking too much more about maybes and we’ll have only absolution to deal with.

Equipment : canvas, ink, pencil, acrylic, suffering, and some ps magic along with a great title by The Smashing Pumpkins

Plenty more coming in the series, stay tuned!

I do art stuff with my finger things.

I also do artwork and background animation for and Cyanide & Happiness.

It’s pretty swell.
