I don't know what it is about that "Closer" song by Nine Inch Nails, but I feel so...enraptured when I listen to it.
I was tired of being unable to convey this feeling, so I did a quick doodle. There was literally no thought as I made it, I just focused on how I felt. And for once, there really is no negative connotation to this. :)

There's so much passion and sensuality we humans feel, and to be unable to share it with anyone else is a terrifying, lonely, and miserable thing. I've only ever had brief occurrences of intimacy in my life, and having even come to know it for one second is an overwhelmingly amazing feeling. But there is something so pleasurable in the desperation of wondering if I'll ever feel it again, and yet it's an equally aching prospect. Maybe sharing something like this is the closest I'll get to intimacy, maybe not. Regardless, I hope that you enjoy viewing the rawness from my mind. Consider it a current self-portrait.

I, too, treasure the desperation in this picture. Take deeper hold of your creativity in vice. Pursue lasciviousness, malice, and depravity. These things are pleasure's forerunners. This art is itself a forerunner.

Nicely put. I'm especially glad you analyzed this one drawing so deeply, really. It's good to know someone else is trying to experience everything that went into the picture as best as they can, and you seemed to list everything I wanted to accomplish perfectly.

I will most certainly continue to pursue such things, hopefully my motivation will want to, as well.

Thank you!

Ah! I tried to look at it on your myspace but it wouldn't let me O.o

Even though the proportions aren't how they should be, somehow it just looks right. That's pretty amazin! yeah, I agree with Mollie. The wording is very well done. I totally get what you're saying.

Haha! I'm glad the fucked up proportions somehow work! I really love doing that, but it's super hard!

Thank you, Runa!

And fuck myspace. :shakefish:
