Daily Deviation

Given 2009-07-27
I came upon The Dream by ~god-of-insects and my immediate reaction was like: "...must... DD this... now... must...". The subtleties of the oneiric atmosphere on this piece show the rich maturity of ~god-of-insects' work. If you like what you see and haven't been though this gallery, i advise you to click on and meet your new favorite artist. ( Featured by stigmatattoo )

the tiger kinda reminds me about sth, dunno maybe it was some work from James Jean... anyway I really love your style and the colouring. i'm much more into acrylic than oil and i really admire when someone can use it so well. and omg it really is huge! i wonder how long you spent on it..

thanks! Yeah I'm a huge james jean fan and copycat. I spent 8 freaking months on this painting, by the end i was so sick of looking at it I wanted to burn it.

I rather like your style. It is very interesting and creative. Is there a story behind this by chance?

:icongod-of-insects:
god-of-insects Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2010
Yeah kind of. I didn't intentionally apply a narrative concept to this, but it reflects a lot of stuff I was going through around the time I painted it. Worth remembering, not worth reiterating ;)

I can kinda relate to that. My best work is usually done when I am going through somethings.I like to think that it is worth it if I come up with something fantastic. A lot of my work isn't on here though and I haven't updated in a long time. I haven't had much time for the internet either which I'm guessing you can tell by how long it toke for me to reply to your message. Anyway, I really like your work, it is very original. I look forward to seeing more.

Humteedum. I was originally asking for about 8G's for the painting itself... but I'd be willing to drop it down to like $4000 or even lower just to get it out of my life. I've never shipped something so large before, at least not out of the country. My last big shipment was about half its size, and came to about $150CAD via UPS... not bad. If you're interested, drop me a note or something... 4 u I make special price. There's always prints, too...
