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…

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 036 – Synergy

Contorted in an interplay of flesh and metal, a pair of once-humans serve a new function as part of the machinery of the industrial post-reality. The mortal burden of their autonomy was lifted from them long ago and they now freely offer their agony to the greater cyborganic state. There are two layers to what…

Everyday 034 – Interdimensional

Before the dawn of the post-reality, humans believed in the possibility of demons entering their world through interdimensional travel. With the barriers between worlds torn apart following the industrial rift, the creatures who managed those interdimensional portals slipped from the shadows and into the light, moving freely through the post-reality in plain sight. I recently…

Everyday 033 – Azazel

The bearer of human guilt, Azazel was once burdened by mortals’ indifference to the suffering he endured in their name. Now, infused with the overwhelming sin of the industrial post-reality, Azazel chooses to channel his burden outward into the earth itself. Rooted to the land through powerful cyborganic implants, Azazel embraces the abundant violence and…

Everyday 031 – Dream of Wires

Locked into a hallucinatory state of drug-induced meditation, this faithful devotee of cyborganics has become fully immersed in an unconscious reality. By willfully committing to the physical union of flesh and machine, this acolyte remains eternally suspended in a dream of wires.  The title of this drawing is a reference to Gary Numan’s excellently odd…

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 026 – The Incubator

The Incubator is a cyborganic dark knight of the future and the product of a diabolical scientific mind. A mind that chooses to pickle pieces of people on the roaming warriors he builds in his starkly lit laboratory. The loose linework of this drawing and large areas of black reflect the incubator’s unpredictable and often…
