Having seen a lot of your works this one I know is different to your usual.
The art/technique is brilliant, and I have seen less of this type of thing by you so am impressed how you seem to be able to pull of an insanely wide range of things in your talent.
You have done a brilliant job of making the station (background) look completely normal, which makes the focus on the actual goings on in the picture magnified. Considering that it is this in the picture that makes it a more strange piece, this is a great achievement. Making the background impressive, and yet not dominating.
As for the content of the picture, it is very intriguing and I have been staring at it for a while now, and still not done. The other part of the art that I believe should be mentioned it the top, where the tree fades into the light, I like how this is done, it is almost a dome effect, it is as if it should be there and yet shouldn't at the same time. It sets the tone well for the picture.
Amazing job overall, and it was interesting to see a different topic of picture by you.

Wow! This is spectacular in all senses of the term! I imagine I could spend as long as I want and yet discover new details I hadn't spotted before! Everything is weird here, that's why I love it. From the calendar that indicates the first of January to the punching sack to the right, along with the clock (28:44!) and the farmer who's milking the cow without a bucket, the walking fingers, the melting, wet walker, the apple in the subway, the big chess pawn, the good old pong game :D, the black/white wolf, people at a table right on the subway tracks, the falling guy (how did he get there?), the un-sync'ed clock in the back, the paper family and the square box at the opposite of the room...

Your gallery is all made with extra-ordinary works but this one is by far (IMHO) the most fantastic and disturbing one, incredibly detailed. It is a delicious exercise at finding dissonant details and weirdnesses of all kinds. The overall feeling I have when I see this is Wow! What am I doing here? How do I get outta here? I feel totally immersed.

The vibrant colours caught my eye at first. Only then did I realize there was something wrong in there. Wait a minute: *everything* is going wrong! As if trapped in some sort of singularity or plunged into the fifth dimension and can't escape.

As an amateur of bizarre I can't but love this work.

I just love it is incredible but can yo tell me. Does the wolf back there has a meaning???? Sorry is because I love wolves and Im interested XD.
poetic-killer Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2012
The wolf refers to a line in Question Irrelevant, the first song on the album Natural Causes, which is "the wolf's getting near and it all becomes clear". This is the same for most of the images that appear in the cover.

Beautiful stuff. I spent quite some time looking at this one. I'm sure when I'll look at it again I'll see something different. Great job!

Why don't they make train stations like this? A big, beautiful tree in the middle of it all, that would be great!

Crazy awesome cover!
cerketraceur Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2011
a very unusual picture.
incredibly detailed and unreal.
everything on this picture is weird, but maybe that's how todays world is.
it seams like brainstorming to me.
I especially like the guy doing a back flip in the air and the clocks.
not one clock displays the same time like the others, which would be bizarre in the real world.
little different than the other work of yours, but filling my every expectation.
excellent work!

a cd cover? my god , man... the print res on those is lousy! you need to have this enclosed as an 8x foldout poster at least!
Vyath Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2011
That's indeed what we're doing. The CD insert is actually a folded 50*50 poster!
tabbat8 Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2011
that is cool! i'm gonna have to do some diving into the newbury's a city away!

there are many strange things going on there ^^ Why's there two fingers out walking!? Awesome picture though

amazing detail
RealmKnight Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
It seems a shame to put this on a CD cover, where it will be too small to take in all the intense detail and surreal aesthetics. There is so much going on that it seems destined to be an artwork that you can come back to time and time again, and every time notice some new quirk or curiosity.
silentasthedead Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2011
its gorgeous
TobiRyuKamikaze Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist

Im certain that either Zee Captain, Snippy, or both, are both in this crowd somewhere - not in their usual post-apocalypse-attire that we recognize mind you.

Raerobstar Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2011
JAMsEye was right, spend as much time as you want looking and you'll always discover new details. I esepecially loved the chess on the floor, It's so subtle I woudn't have noticed it if it wheren't for the pawn.
