Nervous Breakdown.

I watched the movie 'Candy' the other day, decent movie but nothing too special.
It's about heroin addicts, and one of them suffered a nervous breakdown which got me thinking that I should try and capture that in an image.

The result turned out to look like a portrait of sorts of Salvador Dalí, with the outlines of a stache' and everything, completely by accident, so I colored it black and went with it. (:
And I listened to one of my all time favourite live albums: Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Live Seeds while coloring/editing it.

I get the same feeling from actual photos of Dali.

I feel this one has a very agressive vibe. Like as if it's actually dangerous to look at it too long, heh.
It might work well as a movie poster for a 1970s low budget giallo remake of Psycho :D
