The Dark Place


My friend Chris Brunner has been known to use this saying, "I went to the dark place when i drew this." I take that to mean, he invested himself fully in a piece, letting the piece completely absorb him. This can be a good way to try new things, and push yourself to limits, coming back to earth with a new way of seeing. I think i went to the dark place with this one. It's not done, so the lights are still off.
