Lifegiver

All living creatures endured immortality in the cyborganic post-reality, and as a result, the ability to reproduce was simply snipped out of the universe. This did not stop living entities from mimicking the relationships they once had, though the relationships took on unusual new dynamics.   A former childbearer refused to let go of her motherly…

Reincarnation

It might go without saying, but HR Giger holds an important influence in my artwork. Incidentally, although I’ve always acknowledged him as one of my favorite artists and an inspiration for my own work, there hasn’t always been a strong visual connection between his art and mine. Eight to ten years ago, anyone looking at…

Life Supporting Machine

Humans created machines to support them in all aspects of daily life. Perhaps most significantly, they relied on them to extend their lives, creating an artificial extension of the hours given them by the gods. In the post-reality, the relationship between flesh and machine reversed, and the organic life within humans became a source of…

Everyday 039 – We Used to Feel More Human

A pair of once-humans, formerly committed to each other in their moments of flesh, remain suspended in a state of reciprocal cyborganic pain. The artificial distance between them in the post-reality ensures they remain in constant contact but never touch or feel one another again. My drawings occasionally have a sexual element in them. As…

Everyday 038 – Pan

Of all the pre-collapse beings, those least affected by the shift into the industrial post-reality were the old gods. Having always existed in a state of parallel involvement with the mortal worlds, many of them chose to stay aloof, leaving humans to work out their own path forward in the new world of machines. Pan…

Everyday 037 – Soul Collector

Millions wandered through the post-reality in a simple flesh form following the industrial collapse. Those with cyborganic implants were able to prey on these fully human creatures with little resistance. One such hunter took great delight in his victimization of flesh, sucking the souls from mortal bodies to reap increasingly complex and powerful artifacts from…

Everyday 035 – Toad Licker

Once relegated to pond leaves and the undersides of human boots, this particular amphibian found new size and new life in the industrial post-reality. She now happily grows human heads on her lower body, infusing them with her natural bufotenine alkaloid to keep them in a suspended state of psychedelic torment. Amphibians are some of…

Everyday 030 – Witches

In their mortal lives, these three sisters were nearly inseparable. When the machine age reached its height and the fabric of their reality began to unravel around them, they chose to bind themselves to one another as a means of survival. Now, living as a single mass of cyborganic tissue and metal, the three witches…

Everyday 029 – Conjuror

The conjuror once strung his guitar and played for audiences of thousands. Thanks to the artificial immortality he possesses through cyborganic implants, he continues to mimic that musical act, though his instrument now produces little more than the gurgled cries of the damned. Conjuror expands the realm of cyborganic mythology I’ve been developing over the past…

Everyday 028 – Hierophant

For centuries, the hierophant carried out his duties as shepherd to the people and bearer of divine truths. Yet as the fabric between the mortal world and the realm of the gods became torn by industrial magicks of humankind, a rift developed within him. No longer bound to serve his cosmic overseers, the hierophant binged…
