The Deep by VileYonderboy The Deep by VileYonderboy
As we dive deep into the unconscious, sometimes there are creatures lurking that want to drag us down deeperů





Although I really did create this from both a dream and from irrational fear. I was having problems breathing at night gasping for air and was dreaming that I was sinking down further or being pulled by something. I also think we deal with a lot things that are deep within us and only surface in times of stress this represents that.

Interestingly a month before I did this piece we also had visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium. And the octopus that was there was attracted to me or my shirt I was not sure if it wanted to eat me or be my friend. But every time I walked up to the tank it followed me and only me. People all around the area were like, look at that octopus follow that guy! I put my hand up to the glass and it put it's tentacle up to meet it. It was very surreal but I felt no danger... When I left for the day I was sort of sad, it seemed as friendly as a cat or a puppy!

Thanks for viewing and please enjoy the rest of my gallery or leave me a comment!
