I really appreciate all of you and this community. Feelings of alienation are quickly dispatched knowing there are a multitude of you out there who see untapped beauty in the darker corners of the world and share it. Who feel catharsis through connection with darker culture and know it is not a true reflection of their sum, just a facet of what intrigues them. They speak of the abyss and gazing into it, how you should be wary of the beast that stares back...what they never told you...was the abyss is nothing more than a mirror. How are we to understand the cycles we find ourselves perpetually caught in if we never reflect upon our darkest, most hidden, motivations and drives? Do not ever be afraid of what you may find inside yourself, just strive to understand the machinations of the beast that moves you, so you may move it along pathways of your own construction. I wish all of you all the love and all the luck in all the world, -SJ

Hey man! Thanks for all the faves and badges! Here are a few from me :)

I got all these damn points might as well spread the love :D

Epic gallery! I love the wild vibes all your drawings have.

Thanks so much! I try to keep it colorfully dark around here :D

Wow, such a beautiful works! O_O✨

With your permission I take the opportunity to present myself and make a proposal: I´m Xurxo Avila, a spanish actor, director, writer and producer. I have a horror script that I have not been able to shoot and I was thinking of turning it into a graphic novel for IMAGE COMICS -WE ALL WORK FOR MONEY- with the collaboration of one of my best friends, the USA`s editor and colorist JOSÉ VILLARRUBIA. I have seen your drawings and would you like to draw the story? I really like your style very much, I think it would go very well to the story and I think we could create a unique and fascinating horror story. I hope I didn't bother you with the proposal. The idea is to draw 6 scenes from the script (he told me that it is the usual number when you send it to any American comic book publisher), send them along with the same script and a lot of things that I have more (you can see some of them on my page, in the folder entitled: "CINEMA" : art concepts, posters,...) to the publisher and see if they like it and get us to work. If you want I pass the script to you, you read it, and you tell me. Greetings.

I'm offering commissions!
