Bird-throat by Dystoper Bird-throat by Dystoper
This is a surreal-horror piece I painted involving the loss of privacy & the illusion of freedom. I'd involved birds as a symbol of freedom being caught in various iterations in the throat - as if crying "freedom" whilst being inevitably tied down to one opinion. Wings are bursting mangled through the profile trying to fly away but, again, being uselessly tied to their one owner. The claws have mutilated the face from the inside-out, scaring the visage with large empty holes and finally removing the eyes and vision.

Glad you like it my bro. It's supposed to invoke horror. Kind of culminates my feelings on internet freedoms & how they're being lost to new legislation (in things like CISPA). Don't feel bad about freaking out - I value honesty more than anything with my art :) *hugs*
