Sting on the Inside by glittersniffer Sting on the Inside by glittersniffer
Sting on the inside.
It is raining outside, it is perfect.
I have been drawing a lot of clouds in my work lately… it’s mainly because the weather has grown darker down here…
And maybe my mood has too…

The little elephant is all credits to –Camille Rose Garcia- I adore her work and its pretty amazing how little things of her work do remind me of my own tastes and such…
The original elephant drawn by –Camille- had a slit in its belly :)
I have wanted to draw something like this for a while…
Slit belly and wasps…
I draw wasps or bees a bit in my work, mainly because I’m SHIT scared of them.
I want a wasp tattooed on me somewhere because they are my fear :)
Somehow it makes sense….
To me.


Pretty and helpless… she has become what she wants to be…
She is the portrait of beauty… yet she will not see
Important with, within and without but never knew.
Still troubled…

You left and it’s all over…
That’s what she wanted…
?

Yet …
It still stings on the inside…

I saw this print on a t-shirt some time ago. I fell instantly in love. I am curious if anyone has a tattoo based upon this. If not, with a few modifications I'd be honored to have her. Please let me know and also how to contact you more directly, it would really mean so much! My email is soo.jaded@yahoo.com

slit bellies almost seem to be a tradmark of yours.
i love this drawing and the boldness of red. the way you've done the roses is probably my favourite thing about it.

I think my bf and I have the same thoughts on this piece, she is beautiful, yet hurt.. confused and lost.. this piece speaks mounds.. The elephant is so so cute, yet disturbing at the same time. All your work is gorgeous, yet not too beautiful. It's dark, it has it's deep anguish and anger, but it is still so beautiful to look at. You are one truly gifted female. :)

it's funny how you draw bees because you're afraid of them. i draw spiders for the same reason.

the darkness around her eyes shows how she's feeling very well. seems so sad and exausted i love it :) good choice of colors!

I ADOOOORE elephants, and this piece.
You don't know how special this is to me haha.
I always say if there was a way to miniaturize elephants and keep them the size of a dog, I'd have one as a pet.
They're so cute and smart...
