I find your stuff really inspring but if it is not that much of a burden for you, I'd really love if you added a description to your drawings as I have problem understanding some.

yeah I know, I don't have that much time and I usually leave out the explanation... sometimes I find it hard to explain without sounding banal so I simply don't
the metaphor here is about being impervious (immune) to your own fall (mental or whatever) or to some kind of loss
it's inspired loosely by the fall of Icarus (from mythology) but with the meaning I mentioned before
the actual fall is symbolized by the falling feather, and the expression of the character as well as the wings pointed upwards show how unmoved the character is

Wow. Amazing.

I wanted to ask how you come up with this mind bending stuff, but in this comment I think I got a glimpse at how you think.

Really inspiring.

Thank you for the explanation. It's okay if you don't have time, it was just a suggestion. Just continue what you do best!

Are you drawing in photoshop
Interesting idea , will you finish it?

the lines and black-grey shading are just pencil
I only added the blue background in photoshop (and left some places white)
not sure about taking it further - I mean maybe I'll do it again differently, more detailed

Maybe change background , add shadows & it will look more complete.
I like your works...
