Well it's a bit silly and self-serving to post a therapeutic break-up drawing, but people have mentioned that they really want to see what kind of art will come out of my relationship ending so I'm not going to keep it from everybody.

Beautiful. ...That's probably not the right word, but it's certainly what first came to mind about it. Very Nightmare-ish. And I don't know if it was intentional or not, but the little bitty smudge of color in the middle is really distracting.
As for the smudge, it wasn't intentional. I was probably smoking hookah while drawing and I always manage to get a bit of hookah flavor smudged on my paper while I do that. I'm sorry if it's too distracting, I probably should have desaturated the picture in photoshop before uploading :<
I was sitting waiting for the bus. I pulled out my Lovecraft book and opened it to this passage. It is from a short story called THE NAMELESS CITY. It freaked me out cause I had just replied to your quote and response earlier. It a really great story. Read it when you get a chance.
" The importance of these CRAWLING CREATURES must have been vast, for they held first place among the wild designs on the frescoed walls and cieling. With matchless skill had the artist drawn them a world of their own, wherein they had cities and garden to suit their dimensions; and I could not but think that their pictured history was allergorical, perhaps shewing the progress of the race that worship them. These creatures, I said to myself, were to the men of the nameless city what a she-wolf was to Rome, or some totem-beast is to a tribe of Indians."
