"angel of death remix"

The angel embraced him gently

as he broke free from the demon’s clenching claws.

RegularJOE (Director) writes:

ILLUSTRATORS — So the “angel” should be “The Angel of Death” but not your typical scary Grim Reaper. He/She should seem like a beautiful angel, but I think still have the classic Scythe.

The Demon should be your traditional Cherub angels, except menacing, with claws!

"1 Hour, 1 Minute, 1 Second"

Text by fractaldust

My grandfather hated clocks.

Clocks, he said, were deceptive in their construction. They mapped time onto a circle, and told us that every hour, minute, second repeated itself once every day. Around them, we let our guards down, slipped into the easy comfort of repetition, and closed our eyes to the truth: Time was no circle.

On his death bed, he recognized none of us and stared listlessly into space.  I think he was looking back on the winding spiral of his life, lingering on every moment he longed to revisit; perhaps in his youth, young brave and stupid, he dared to believe that he could.

He exhaled his very last sigh of regret, and as I closed his eyes, I opened mine: Every second, once passed, was lost forever.

DayGlo (Text Curator) writes:

I love this! Short, bittersweet, insightful, and thematically rich. It is, above all else, beautifully written.

Illustrators could imagine some conceptual clocks, or perhaps what the grandfather looked like on his deathbed; maybe even a timeline of his life, spiralling back into the past.

It would be really interesting to see how we can bring this little &#8220;lifeless&#8221; robot to life&#8230; from writing his story, expanding on the illustrations or a short animation (silent perhaps?)
It quite possibly matches up to an existing story or characters already on the site, like this image.

This short animation is amazing in its visual style, sound design and simple - yet totally effective - story. She has taken sojushots&#8217; original imagery and brought the character to life in such a beautiful way. The eyes alone are captivating.Although this works perfectly as a standalone animation, this could easily work as part of the Grimm Gallery Collab or even the Kids VS Monsters Collab in some way.

The Iconography Of Angels

Text by Symbiote

Death is an app. Before that, it was a commercial-free, 24-hour broadcast of the afterlife. Anyone who had died within the past decade showed up onscreen living a second episodic life in otherworld programming, with no memory of a previous existence. Ages changed; disfigurement was sometimes corrected. An alternate history was created for them while we yelled at the screen, “No! No! We’re here! You were here, too!”

There is no way to communicate with the afterlife or its producers. No one has been able to find the origin of the broadcast. It just inserted itself between channels one night during prime time.  

Religions around the world lost followers. There is little fear of dying now the mystery is solved. In death, you reincarnate into a new show and live forever in reruns. Life is residual. The iconography of religion transformed into something more down-to-earth: Heaven as drudgery and bureaucracy; angels without need for wings. Prayer is a text message sent into the void.

A loyal husband saw his wife in afterlife porn performing acts she would never have considered with him. The mixture of anger, jealousy and bitterness didn’t keep him from arousal.

A suicidal nineteen-year-old had her murdered boyfriend’s face tattooed on her forearm. She knew that people did that. It never works. Most tattoos don’t travel into the afterlife. Those that do appear as strange birthmarks—no one ever remembers. Nevertheless, she was determined, convinced of the indestructibility of true love. After death, she had the blemish removed by a cosmetic surgeon on the other side.

A murderer slowly went insane watching his victim flourish, more successful in the afterlife than in the one from which the killer removed him. The murderer still follows him around the screen as intently as a cat watches a bird.
 
Our departed live on, continually recast, never remembering this world or constructing stories about the end of their own. The dead only seem haunted when they look into the camera.
