To be honest, looking at this, kinda makes me feel fuzzy in side~ It's just so cute, but a bit on the creepy side, that it reminds me of my little brother and I. Oddly, most people I know would say something like this is freaky, or to creepy, horrifying even, but, I say different. This is TRULY amazing. It gives off almost a scary but beautiful vibe when I look at the detail, almost as though you've felt something like this before, but, not exactly like it, ya know?
I'm really glad I read the Article about your stuff. In the article this piece was featured, and I have to admit that at first glance it horrified me - I thought "Ah! That's scary, but it's looks familiar. . .".
However, as I read the rest of the article I came to understand what it is you want such odd creatures to show, and I thought how poetic it all sounded. Anyway, I just wanted to say that I really liked this image, even more so after reading the Article. I even had to hunt IT down, you & it.
I'm also sorry that I can't particularly enjoy this work entirely as something of your own, because although your style is completely original and evident in this piece, it really does seem familiar to me. Ah, to be clear and fair, I'm saying it brings back memories I have of art (by Stephen Gammell) in the "Scary Stories" series of books I enjoyed as a younger person and like to read to my younger relatives now.
The art all seemed to be a fusion of distort, disturbing & humor. Something I feel this piece possesses but overall is completely unrelated to the same purpose as the other art it reminds me of. It's the details in the gears that really bring me to realize this is someone Else's work every time I look at it now.
Anyway, this is really nice. I like the little heart, and the inside of the open mouth of the bigger. . .thing.
