Hands Free


Author Comments

This painting is a canvas pic about 2ft x3ft, painting with acrylics. In this pic, "Hands Free", we see a local hell denizen and his obsession over cell phones. Completely bound and at the mercy of its connection, he licks the screen (his last method of touching since his arms are bound up). There is a pack of Doritos on the ground next to him...a fast food for him to consume so as not to waste any time away from his beloved electronics. There are also two smaller demons that come to help...the rabbit centipede eats vermin from his fur in exchange for blood and the licker demon below sexually gratifies him in exchange for saliva. The bee on the top is about to get killed by the cell phone (a symbol about how our cell phones electromagnetic waves are actually killing and messing up bee populations in the world..look it up haha its true). Without the happy bees we are dooming ourselves but hey at least we got all the perks that the cell phone offers us! you can see more about the rabbit centipedes in a past drawing here: http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/comick/drink-up

Good job ;)

Comick responds:


Some people may say "What is this abomination?" or "This makes me puke" but I say the author has a point. His work are based on people who obsessed with telephones and internet etc. Author sees all those persons in reality and breaks the illusion for us. I can imagine how he just sees that in corner of room and redraws it. Future of generation is in ours hands and he just one who acts by showing what someone can't see!

Comick responds:

Ah thanks man for the kind words and looking further into the piece then just the basic surface values when yeah I put some real thought and purpose into my pieces (even if they may or may not always read perfectly or as bluntly as it could be to the casual or close minded viewer). So thanks for taking the moment to look deeper into the visual imagery!!
