Shinju Pt1 by Life-takers-crayons Shinju Pt1 by Life-takers-crayons
Shinju means double suicide in Japanese theatre, it also apparently means breast torture but in this case I'm being a good boy and not refering to that;P
I wanted to depict desperation, frustration, despair, a sense of loss maybe of will to live or control.... and leave it up to the viewer to guess what has or is happening...and maybe what the out come would be!
This is part 1 of the series part 2 will follow very soon once I've started painting it :D More immolating art coming soon!!

The usual acrylic and ink on card :)
This painting was the first to sell when I held my exhibition :w00t: Kind of sad to think I'll not see the real one ever again!!
