Commute (Inktober 2016, 2/31) by MartchZagorski Commute (Inktober 2016, 2/31) by MartchZagorski
After a while the separate trips blurred together. Was he going to work or from it? He knew he did both yesterday but is right now today or tomorrow? The in-betweens got foggy and then disappeared altogether. He was on the road, hands in 10 and 2 position, seatbelt gently holding him and the interior rhythmically lit by the street lamps. Deep darkness to his left and to his right. Did he lock the front door before leaving? Or was it the lights at the office he forgot to switch off? He felt he had forgotten something.
Why aren't there any other cars on the road?
The road bends left then right, then a straight stretch for a while. Rinse and repeat.
Where was he going again? Where from? To him it doesn't really matter anymore.
The low hum of the engine soothes him. He doesn't want to go anywhere, anyway.
He smiles and closes his eyes.
Darkness all around and the comforting hum of the engine.

That's pretty cool. I didn't noticed a car at first. Just thought it's another abstract work. Really like the message :)

Paldies, Oksan! Man pašam ļoti patīk uzrakstīt kādu īsu tekstiņu un priecājos, ka ir citi, kam arī patīk. :)

What a very nice picture. I do really like the message.

If I would be the person in the car, I would stop after a while and jump into the darkness. I couldn't live in this kind of monotony for a long time ...

But wouldn't the darkness be even more monotonous? Nothing, but the thoughts in your head.
Anyhow, I'm glad you liked it, Michaela! :)

Surrounded by nothing just alone with my thoughts?
How great. I would create mind palaces, world by world, civilisation by civilisation. I would be a god in my own imagination :)
If there is nothing, it means allways space to create :)

You're welcome :)

I know I may be boring, but once again, I'll say it anyway: I love the concept, and the drawing is amazing!
