‎When you are tattooed you are not anymore fat or skinny, small or big. You are tattooed. And what you tattoo on you is not what mother nature made you, it is what you decide for yourself. That is also part of the reason why tattoos are so addictive; that feeling of power over nature, society. Self-determinism.

I read Neil Gaiman’s “Ocean at the End of the Lane” this summer, and It completely got me back into reading. 
This is my interpretation of one of the “Hunger Birds,” the willfully aggressive, world devouring varmints. When something is out of hand, or out of place, they devour.
They are the Cleaners. 
The image of them was so clear to me, that I couldn’t help but try to put it on paper. 
I also read that Focus Features will be adapting this story into a film that will be produced by Tom hanks and directed by Joe Wright. I would very much love to be a part of that. 
 

This is so beautiful, and so much like the Hunger Birds inside of my head.

Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.
Terry Pratchett, Reaper Man (1991)
