I wanted to start out by saying that a lot of the Fallen pictures I do are not just a ';pretty picture'. They all have emotional meaning behind them for myself. It could be a mood I am feeling, something that has happened to me, something I want... but don't most people do art like that? I use these characters because they not only tell their own story, but they're telling mine as well. I was never good with words.

Like I said in the line art, what is the point of keeping something beautiful locked up? Wouldn't you want to share it with the world? Or are you too afraid that something will happen to it, like death or harm? Who are you really protecting? The caged one or yourself?

She put herself into this situation and the one way out isn't interested.

Interpret that as you will.

i understand the poem, unfortunatl becuase i have a black heart, i dont 'feel it'

if pictures are a thousnad words, the joint effort between the picture and the poem are harmoneous and soul searching

but like i said before, i have a black heart, i feel nothing.

great image. it speaks volumes to the people that are moved by it.

Four pages of comments. Well, the drawing is really well done, and I do enjoy a good poem when the tme calls. I think that this drawing, called for such a thing.
