Kiss by Miles-Johnston Kiss by Miles-Johnston
Been up to a whole bunch of things since I last posted, but in hindsight I'll probably just drop this here and put a bunch of the rest over on my tumblr. miles-johnston.tumblr.com/

I'm attaching a super super high res for all you resolution fetishists out there. This drawing is a bit of a personal tribute to the work of Klimt who is a big recent inspiration of mine. Hope you enjoy, please feel free to share it or print out the full res or whatever! Original medium is pencil and A4 size, the green tint is digitally added.

wonderful work...for some reason it makes me think of narcissism and narcissistic abuse. the skeleton figure is the narcissist/psychopath who seeks to destroy innocent lives while the woman kissing the skeleton is the victim who is about to get spiritually and mentally killed. Once the psychopath devalues and leaves her. The victim's life, health, friendships, and reputation is completely ruined and she is left to pick up the broken pieces of her life that will never be the same again...

What a great pencil sketch! The amount of detail is staggering. I just finished re-reading 'On a Pale Horse' the other day (I know, childish book, but I was feeling melancholy for my childhood) and then I saw this piece. If definitely resonates with me. Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent, and in such high resolution. Bravo.
