POPULARITY by AustenMengler POPULARITY by AustenMengler
The first part of my collaboration with alexiuss for Romantically Apocalyptic Issue 72 which can be viewed here! romanticallyapocalyptic.com/72

alexiuss already posted this bad boy in his gallery but I figured I would too in case you missed it.

Pencil illustrations scanned and painted in Photoshop CS5. Probably around 10 - 12 hours all up.

Download for full view wallpaper size!

Mesmerising. A commentary of contemporary society- with greater and greater pressure being put on young people to fit in, what makes them unique as individuals is slowly stripped away like the flayed corpses.
