All right, kids, I've polished the image and re-uploaded it for a momentous occasion: I now have a print account! This image is the first to become available as a print, and I'm going to try to get others ready soon.

EDIT: The good Pitkon has been industrious enough to create a skin, using this piece. Check it out here: [link]

Reality 1920x1200 by ~pyxelated is a stunning widescreen wallpaper. Dark, grungy and way beyond cool. ( Suggested by jorgehpz and Featured by zilla774 )

This may be one of the most influential DA pieces of art there is. I've even got school books with this painting inside.

Are you German? I seem to recall licensing it to a German publisher at one point.

Managed to get this retweeted on twitter by a fairly influential person: twitter.com/johnrobb/status/52…

This image is very striking - it gets more relevant every day. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the subject. Has your view changed since this was originally made?

I still believe that the technology we use for our escapism may change, but the desire to escape stays the same. We all feel the impulse to rely on fantasy worlds to avoid the world we live in.

Yep, that's exactly what I hoped to get across with this image. The desire to escape doesn't happen in a vacuum.

Took ages to find this piece again. I remember seeing it before, but couldn't find it.
Beautiful work. One question, is it possible to get a higher resolution? my monitor is 2560x1440, and i'd rather avoid stretching.

i work in the movies and i am scared that i am helping to bring the world towards this.

very painterly and rich. love your work on the baseboards and wall covering. the anatomy on the toes is really strong and gestural too. love the rainbow image inside of the goggles.

concept is really really strong. great work.

Ah, I didn't see your statement. At first I was like, you agree with Mavav? You're too creative. Upon further inspection I did find your statement... right on the same page. *facepalm* .. I agree with you. Not Mavav. And you are a wonderful artist.
