THE 8TH DAY by Sallow THE 8TH DAY by Sallow
Here is an actually new image, seems a very long time since I’ve posted new work.

This was done for a good friend of mine who runs his own tattoo studio called TUFUGA ZOO ( [link] ) and does all my tattoos. The brief was to create an image of him on a thrown of skulls and bones with the text ‘’on the eighth day God created …. Me ‘’ along the top. It’s a 7 foot by 4 foot banner to be shown at conventions and shows across the Uk.

It took approx 8 hours from start to finish, I was under pressure to finish as I had very little spare time to work on commissions outside my main projects. Despite the time pressure I liked the end result and managed to have allot of fun adding all those skulls and bones.

That is really cool and apocalyptic. The bones remind me of the Predator ship in Predator 2, anyone else get the same feeling? And 8 hours is definitely talent.

In 8 hours? This? How? What kind of crazy program did you do this with? There's such an incredible amount of detail, especially considering you did this for a 7 x 4' poster...

That's just...insane.

Do you splice photos in along with what you paint by hand, or is this 100% drawn?

My perfect reflection swims
through the drowning pool. The sky is gone.
My world is in deconstruction
The fallen that dreams suicide
Takes the needle, instead of the gun
The victim who self crucifies can't realize
Christ is a weapon that chisels at our lives
Deconstruction

The martyr takes his aim and wounds the holy man
And on the eighth day God made the art of war
And laughing planned the end

Who will tend the garden when the snake swallows the light?
Who will eat the decay when the worms have lost their sight?
Who will rape the weak when there's nothing left to gain?
Who will till the soil of these barren black remains?
Deconstruction, deconstruction
Who will lick my wounds when they take away my speech?
Will you stand in line while the shepherd hunts his sheep?
Could you see tomorrow if I took away your eyes?
Can you crawl from under new age prophecy's despise?
Deconstruction, deconstruction
Deconstruct my reality and let me slip away, I am the dog
Who will tend the garden when the snake swallows the light?
Who will eat the decay when the worms have lost their sight?
Who will rape the weak when there's nothing left to gain?
Who will till the soil of these barren black remains?
Deconstruction, deconstruction
Deconstruction, deconstruction
Our world is in deconstruction
Our world

~ Nevermore, Deconstruction
