thing of my character Francie I did a few months ago. I could talk a little about it I guess. He is sitting in school, but I wanted to show that he's not really there. So he's facing away from his classmates, away from the front of the room.

He hallucinates most of the time, kind of walks though the world in a daze.Most of the time he is in this world of primordial creatures and the darkness. The two serpent-birds ( reference to Huginn and Muninn from Norse mythology) are almost always with him, sitting on his shoulders and whispering to him. There are other creatures, ancient and earthly things- earthworms, giant worms, insects, Ammonites, things of that nature. It's a dark, ancient world but at the same time warm, twistedly comforting to him while also being immensely unsettling.

It may be the way that he copes with the fact that his dad, the only person in his life, is dying. When his dad actually does die, he stop seeing this world abruptly, left alone in what is finally his own mind, he doesn't know what to do with himself.

When I drew it I was feeling like everyday was just repeating itself over and over again, I was really stuck. I still do feel that way, but I've learned to ignore it a little better, haha. I thought, "Groundhog Day," that movie where the days just keep repeating. Anyway I also thought "Francie probably feels like this too" and so I drew it, kind of as an illustration for my story and kind of as a reflection of what I was thinking. I think the school setting is good for this repetition idea. Looking back, I don't know how I ever got thorough school.. every day the same 0___o

    You have a very unique style! This looks like it could be a panel/title page of a comic. I like your detailed description as well. It's nice to know a little bit of background/behind-the-scenes for original pieces.
