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 040 – Lady of Neptune

Many great gods of the outer reaches slumbered through the human era, that brief but calamitous period occupying the final days of Earth. So it was with the Lady of Neptune, quietly waiting beneath dense layers of ice and rock and resting to the sounds of the ferocious ice storms above her. Yet the human…

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 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 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 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 032 – Skullball

Loaded with a tank of fuel and a head full of fury, the skullball comes rocketing to Earth. It’s been flying for countless orbital cycles and wending its way through the universe’s dying starlight. It has no clear purpose, though a brief flash in its withered husk of a brain tells it that its destination…

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…
