Fisheye Placebo: Solo for the Self by yuumei Fisheye Placebo: Solo for the Self by yuumei

:bulletblue:FACEBOOK:bulletblue:TUMBLR:bulletblue:TWITTER:bulletblue:



More drawings for my future graphic novel, Fisheye Placebo :D This is Frey playing the electric violin. It's plugged into his headphones and silent to the rest of the world. He does when he needs to plan out the next strategy to fight against a totalitarian regime.

You can see the violin design here

The background words say "WAR IS WAR" on repeat. This phrase is traditionally used as an excuse for extreme war time cruelty. It's essentially saying "war is meant to be cruel so that's what you get." Although Fisheye Placebo will be more about cyber warfare, I think the war time mentality can still apply and can cause extreme psychology damage to those involved.

Frey is silently playing the violin on the outside, but a war is ranging on the inside.

You are so inspirational!! I read a few of your posts and they brought tears to my eyes. You are amazing. I love your art and the messages that you try to bring out behind them. They are so deep and rang true to the core of my heart. I feel very deeply connected to your characters.

Amazing~ Although if you want people to buy the print (I definitely would if only I could afford it ;-;) I suggest you don't provide a download of it.... ;) Unless the print and download were two diff things (because idk much about prints and downloads on dA)

Honestly I have tears in the eyes, because of the art and the text you wrote.
I'm a survivor of the Bosnian War and this reminds me of one of a fellow countryman called Vedran Smajlović.
He's known as the Cellist of Sarajevo. During the war, he was playing cello in public to honor victims of the war and at funerals despite the danger he was in.
