Daily Deviation

Given 2008-07-28
I have received so many suggestions for this artist to be featured that it would be unfair to list any one person as the suggester. Bed is only one piece from an impressive series of which you can see more on the artist's site. As the artist himself states, he is reinventing archetypes and this piece speaks to the childhood fear that some of us still hang on to: "the monsters are all around us". *Hoffine joined deviantArt not too long ago but he is already a well accomplished artist in his own right. Please give him a warm welcome. ( Featured by Katerina423 )

I was lying in bed, with a feeling of dread, for a demon seemed lurking about.


I dove under the covers, for fear there be others, in a dark that was freaking me out.


Though they all remained quiet, I just wouldn't buy it, I could feel their presence was there.


And trembling in suspense, with panic so intense, I just waited for a bone-chilling scare.


Intolerant of the shaking and in a risk that was worth taking, I jumped up an switched on the light.


Out the window they all flew, because all of them knew, they could only be of terror in the night.




Poetry inspiring!

Meow! very interesting concept and photo. My one big issue with this shot is that you can tell you've used a wide angle lens because of the distortion of the girl. Not much you can do about that if you're shooting in a very small space other than have the best possible glass you can get. 

That and maybe use some more cold tones, this is a very warm and inviting shot (especially when you don't see the monster arms in a preview such as facebook) adding some cool blues or greens will really dank (creep) up the scene.

Just my two cents. Great work!!!

Reminds me of R.L Stine. I forget the title of the book, but there was a moment that the boy woke in his bed as a big hairy monster.
I loved that book though, cause every time he fell asleep he'd woke up as someone else, or, something else. :o

i love that when you look at the blocks, you can see the word ''daddy'' spelled out with the lettered cubes... is she calling to him for help, or is HE the monster she fears...
