Glad to know it helps! Whenever I listen to that piece... I dunno, everything loses its weight and floats around. I get the feeling that I can see a past I never witnessed or a future I won't live through... GAAH that must sound crazy, I'm sorry.
Hehe it sounds rather poetic (: Just don't get lost in time, the best is to stay in the present I guess (: though while you travel in time listenning to music, I tend to travel in space, be people I'm not, live through storys, be in places which don't exist, only in me. I guess everyone has a hidden place/time in themselves, it's fun. :3
i don't know if you'll believe me, but you talk about so complicated things in such a simple and beautiful way, like listening to a very wise old man giving you his life in the form of a fairy tale. your comics are a lot like this... and that's why i love them!
you can get lost in worlds, yes, beyond time or space... time is, after all, a matter of the heart; imagine, what do calendars or watches really count? do seconds even exist - we created them one day, didn't we? but that's a different issue, no need to tire you with my wacko-talk...
as you said, i think it's most important to be able to return, always, to the real. to traverse the fantasy, to live through its events, always with the goal of transcending it... of rejuventating, enrichening the real.
Haha you're kind and kind of flattering me I guess : P you shouldn't (: actually I feel the other way around, your vocab is sooo wide ;u; you really talk/write very nicely, and in a very intelligent way (: I kind of imagine our talks like two old people sitting in their rocking chairs, talking like they know everything about the World, though we really don't I guess haha (:
Haha, time is indeed another mystery o: there were times I tried not to look at my watch for a long time... it didn't work, it kind of made me desperate of thinking about wasting time while I don't know about it. weird...
hah, flattering you - not consciously, no. i see some things in your art that really draw me near, that's all. you know, even if they might be from the same era and look alike, rembrandt and rubens are so different - it's what lies beyond the painting, all these thoughts and ideas, that draw me personally closer to rembrandt.
the same is with your art; it's in its first steps, sure, but the ideas, the concepts connected to it, the way you seem to view the world, i dunno, it seems so very interesting and beautiful.
and do we know anyhting, after all? i guess - in my opinion, at least - we know what we create for us to know... in other words, we create our own experiences, even the objects we see are not exactly what our eyes see, since the image we "understand" has already been processed in the brain.
crazy, isn't it? sometimes it's all so indeterminate and i get lost, like diving in an endless lake... it feels funny, though, and free.
Well, your drawings have this lighthearted mood that stuff like Coraline doesn't do. I like that your stuff knows how to take a concept and make it good, but also can make the concept deep and emotional as well. It definitely adds to the tone!
Yeah, it is fun, in the "dark and creepy" way, but this is very open and imaginative. I showed a few friends and most of them said it was colorful and vibrant, and one of them said it was "downright beautiful, you tell her I said that."
