The Island - Introduction
It stood
Like an inky blot dropped into the night
Craggy finger pointing at a pale moon
It watched
With judging eyes hidden within shadows
Smiling a seers self satisfied grin
It waited
Malevolently patient and calm
Grim monument set amidst darkened waves
The Island
Opened up its arms in welcome to them
Fingers of bone akin to deaths dire embrace
Teeth sprawled out in some frantic disarray
Swirling shades of sombre blue and sickly green
The Island
Beckoned the wanderers into its maw
Whilst the storm brewed malevolently low
Rumbling chorus like tumbling debris
The Island
Finally so close with invasive stance
Gargantuan unmoving monolith
The Island
This forsaken abode of mystery
The Island

Holding tight to kite strings
Didn’t know I had a kite
Just know that there’s a dream up there
In the fading light
Don’t pull too hard, don’t pull too long
You’ll break it
Bring the whole thing down
Clouds will plummet to the earth
Blue will be our final verse
All the lines that we had drawn
Merging into one
Just know I had a dream somewhere
Secured by frail kite strings
Yet like a bird I set it free
Why else would they have wings?
I’m a mixed up
Mussed up
Different kind of guy
I keep on saying
The same old things
Not much of it’s a lie
I’m a weirdo
Whack job
Bent all out of shape
I keep on seeing
The same old things
But I hardly ever cry
Ever wake up one morning
Eyes burnt by the light
Just to find your direction
Was lost in the night
All the maps were set afire
All the routes were changed
All the stars were lost from view
The whole world rearranged
It would be quite exciting
If it wasn

Hanogan's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Varied
United Kingdom
I'm an illustrator who utilizes both traditional and digital techniques incorporated in a range of styles. I've spent years trying to find my focus and be a success whilst always attempting to enjoy what I do.

I'm currently training to work in schools whilst aiming to produce artwork and illustrations for children and children's books.
Well! Whilst 2015 may have been an horrendous year for me personally, 2016 seemed to be a bad one on a more global scale. Somewhat anyway. Despite that though I found that I made some real progress in the year in almost every aspect outside of art, so I'm not complaining in the slightest. 

After years of being a useless bum I successfully held down two jobs at the same time, one of which was temporary but I still do on occasion to cover holidays and the other an actual factual permanent role. In retail of all things. And bizarrely I really enjoy it too. Also money. So with that stuff finally in place and the dust settling I can art it up without the annoying buzz of guilt and pressure! Always nice. 

Mad Monster Month took way too long to get completed, but I did get there in the end and I'm extremely optimistic that it'll be back on track this year. I've made some small changes to my life beyond work, getting rid of some unnecessary crap and so it's all looking good.

Oh, and I also got a paid commission a few weeks ago which I completed. And was paid for. In real money. Monopoly money counts as legal tender right? 

So, to my friends and especially my Gaian friends, I wish you all a productive and subtly sexy new year. Let's art.
