Instincts of Suffering
Ink on Tracing Paper
This piece was drawn for the potential of being used as an album cover for my band Rebirth (which never eventuated). The idea behind the artwork was to reflect on man's causes of suffering through ignorance. The idea was taken from the intro of the demo which reads "Constant rebirth into suffering is caused by ignorance" which is a buddhist philosophical view point. The image reflects social, environmental and moral issues that are prevalent within today's society. The spear and hammer was chosen to be the Rebirth logo and was used as a motif throughout the bands life.
