I’m curious what this piece says to you? When I drew this, I imagined that space and time are different for different people. The lady here appears to have been still and unmoving for so long that her eyes are glazed and she wears a coat of fungus. But perhaps to her, barely a second has passed. Perhaps, death is similar.
