A test with a intervalometer, a fish eye and some poscas markers.The intervalometer was taking flics every 10 seconds.The drawing was done over two days with a brief hospital trip inbetween.If you look closely one the frames you can see my bruised tongue were i bit it fitting.The image is made up of two composits of the human head, made up of a multitude of other smaller heads.Stemming from some work I had been doing for Baptist and Bootleggers inspired by Dante's Devine Comedy.Its been really good getting ingrosed in these writhing forms as i imagine the summing up of all my insecurities and shortcomings in one maluble form.Of course 'hell' is a romantic idea of torment created for masochists to revel in and those easily lead to be indoctrinated into.Aside from this it doesn't detract from the real torment in reality that humans are capable of cognitivily and physicaly.

Hell from Daniel Watson on Vimeo.

I felt confirmed in my conviction to finish it, knowing that i had been robbed a day and had to give the space to someone else.The whole experience of making the work finite, by destroying it almost instantaneously was very modestly carthartic .I like that.It would be sweet to do some more of these thinking about the production abit more.Perhaps if i ever can afford a better laptop and if the autocratic S.O.A.P.A laws havn't destroyed the internet for everyone.
