Illo Friday: Broken

"Each day is a little life;
every waking and rising a little birth;
every fresh morning a little youth;
every going to rest and sleep a little death."

- Arthur Schopenhauer

515 x 630
MS Paint

...maybe there is no life after death.. for death is the end of life. so why call it "life after death"? just wondering.. well that's a broken thought for y'all.. Happy Holloween! };p

note: and yeah, it's never too late to celebrate that. although i think my illo is a li'l too late for "Broken" was last week's topic. It seems that the outcome of my illo didnt turned out as i planned. So was never satisfied, making tons of changes until i didnt realize the whole week has passed. Gee.. might as well post it anyway.

update: Oh nice.. as i opened IF page to submit my entry, it showed this week's topic is "Night" tssk.. can i make this a double entry? If i have time tho, i try to make another one for this week. Let's see...

I like your speckled broken image .... like losing sight when the TV falters .... like when a ghost comes into the room ... like how the air looks when broken from sleep ...

i like this a lot. the best in all your illo's. i like the texture and the colors and composition. it would be nice to hang it on the wall.

Mmm, very textured and contemplative.

Sleeping with the waxing moon behind you seems very suggestive. Seems like putting all the troubles behind you and starting with a blank slate (that may explain the blank face though the hair is present) for another day, or month?

Anonymous.. first, i went to check the links to determine whos the clone. lol. found your very hypnotic!

well got to say insomnia indeed creates faltered images. which greatly influenced this piece.

isay.. thanks for your nice comment. evenif im not totally satisfied with the outcome, i guess the accidental dashes of some colors fitted spiffy. its so great how ms paint can do magic sometimes 8)

Aristocrat.. ooh woah! great to hear from you again!

somehow it may also mean longing for dreams. and thanks for sharing your interpretation 8)

for your second comment... hee *blush*

floots.. thanks!! indeed, Schopenhauer is cool! cheers!
