Happy Women’s Day! <3
A Stream of Tears (2007). Above is a version colorized with computer. Next to it here is the whole original pencil drawing also, 74×46 cm.
A sad yet gentle and hopeful image of a girl sleeping in a stream of her own tears, surrounded by a misty forest. A white pigeon – her soul – flies away.
- Girl with a pigeon seems to be one of my many reoccurring motifs – also see the ending of Venus and the Dream Machine comic.
- The image was used as a cover of my 2CD ambient album collection Kyynelten virta (2008).
- Also used as a stamp.
“Fire Mask has a friend called Eyelip.”
“She follows him everywhere.”
“She is secretly in love with him.”
