Well, I finally got around to posting this. As previously mentioned, this was the drawing that gave me the heebie-jeebies the very same evening that I completed it. I attempted to approximate the lighting and point of view that creeped me out with this photo:
I imagine this photo doesn’t do justice to what I was feeling that night. I’m sure it was more my vulnerable state of mind more than the image itself that caused the fear reaction. Or perhaps they got it right with the character of Mark Lewis in Peeping Tom (1960), “Do you know what the most frightening thing in the world is? It’s fear.”
And what is fear, exactly? I guess that’s a big part of what makes it so frightening… I don’t know. I feel like I’m just tossing this off so I don’t have to think too much about it. Maybe I’m just protecting myself.
On the subject of creation trivia, this seems to be the second of my long-necked or rubber-necked fuzzy skeletonians of late, as you may recall.
Last of all, don’t forget to check out this if you’re looking for something to do this coming Saturday. I’ll be there yuckin’ it up with everybody else so stop on by and enjoy the fun!
