Like clockwork by Aaron-R-Morse Like clockwork by Aaron-R-Morse
This took MUCH thought, and has MUCH meaning, but is so simple in the end. I am a little disappointed, and now after some practice I believe It MUST be redone. Feel free to tell me what you think. To me its the meaning behind it thats important. But even with that being said, I can do a better job at highlighting this.

This picture was created for a good friend of mine, As sort of a memorial for her husband, who she lost due to brain cancer. THE brain powered by the clockwork gears was one thin made to represent life and how everything down to our mind is as fragile as clockwork. However there is another reason for the clockwork brain. In her words, "My husband was the biggest tech guy you could find" and to resemble this in her own personal memorial tattoo was clockwork. So what better thing to use than clockwork for this brain. The brain was selected because when we first began to talk, we had an art trade, which resulted in me getting a clay brain necklace. WIth what has happened it now feels important to me. This is also in respects to any and all who have struggled with brain cancer. Being one of the roughest forms of cancer I know. The clockwork and the brain can go a little more in depth to who he was and how he was, but its better to keep my explanation from getting any longer.

Best of wishes to my friend Amanda and her kids.

I can thank you as well. you have inspired me in all kinds of different ways.
the remake will not take away from this one. It could also be taken as a "sequel" i guess.
