hi archan. long time no talk. i really like the artwork, but i don't understand the theme. Planes crashing, an apple tree upside down, and sun rays just doesn't describe what has happened to the world's economy. just my opinion.

hey! its about job losses in the airline industry most of it... and how its connected with the world economy.
so planes hanging depict how its gone down or crashed or whtever and instead of ppl we have apples which are not fresh :)

This kind of reminds me of Howl's Moving Castle..I dunno! Just sort of the shape it looks like from a distance feels kind of like an airship and then the crazyness of the objects gives it the Howl's Moving Castle feel? I really don't know, but it definitely drew me in. The vibrant colors look lovely as usual, too <33

I -love- that the main loss is focused on airlines :highfive: It's a strange and very wonderful juxtaposition to all the other elements which seem to be blossoming and booming with life... the sun's rays, the apples... all in all a fantastic image :)
