Babylon by imaginism Babylon by imaginism
Here's one of my surreal pieces. Usually I don't show these (I just do them for fun) but this year I submitted one to Spectrum and it got accepted! Oh fun, oh joy!

It's called "Babylon"
It's about society getting so advanced that they build their buildings into the clouds. There they are met by creatures with giant blisters on their heads that are filled with cheese. They feed off of business people because they taste the best.

This might be a little to weird for some but that's just part of the fun. Hope you like it

BONUS --> animated gif [link]

I really love this piece. It's really surreal and it's a little bit unsettling, but really that just /adds/ to the charm of it. Actually, I was wondering if I could use this as a desktop background? I sometimes stream computer games, so it is possible that people will see it, and I want to get your permission before I do anything with it. I don't want to presume or take advantage of your art. I will, of course, put up a link to your deviant art, so others can find it and other such works in your gallery.

oh man, i totally interpreted something else. The business people fly into the mouth of the beast, all in attempts to spend their time inside the beast, to try and get a piece of the cheese, you know "rat race"... kinda a metaphor that big business is a beast, and working for big business is some terrible thing, chasing "cheese" even though it means that you have to spend your days inside the belly of a terrible beast.

Oh! It looks like lots of people work in the orange towers then float to their houses inside the monsters. The cheese looks very much like yellow houses with windows :heart:
