Purify by Shawn Coss

Another brick in the wall of my Halos and Tragedies work.

This is heavily inspired by Derek Hess as this is also being used as Drop To Zero’s cd release flyer. And that man was phenomenal at making flyers.

The story behind this has a lot to do with my disgust with our closest city, Cleveland Ohio. I’m completely repulsed by that city and the behavior of those that inhabit it. So much that I wish floods of blood would come and cleanse the streets of all the negativity, violence, and poor excuses of flesh that reside there. Noted, that it is a generalization but it seems that every person I have come across has either tried to rob me, deceive me, or find some way to benefit from me. A city full of leeches that demands more blood and more sacrifice. I think a tidal wave of HgB would do the trick don’t you?

Kind of brings to mind the song “Aenima” in a way.

I do art stuff with my finger things.

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

It’s pretty swell.
