Tomorrow's Brightest by c-t-elder Tomorrow's Brightest by c-t-elder
"Listen, hotshot. You know how to tell a world worth savin'? Look fer the kids. Oceans may be toxic waste, cities just rubble, there can be a deadly mutant plague for what I care... but as long as the kids have time to just be kids an' spend their day playin', that's a world worth fightin' for. Cause that one has a future."

I went to bed early yesterday, knowing full well I'm going to wake up at 2AM. I woke up, struck by a dream about New Exiles, which span into not just this, but also a short story. So I've been sitting here since 2AM, painting this. I have about two hours to run downtown and get it printed and framed for the art show. And to pack my stuff. And to print bookmarks and other materials.

That's so last minute it's not even funny!

Anyway, I'm off to the convention. See you on Tuesday night! If I live long enough to see the sun rise

Hey is that Vartan there in the background? The foreground with the two kids playing is so very sweet ad true to life. :-)

Really sweet to see him here doing his job instead of just looking good, if you know what I mean!

That's quite a cool concept. I really like the monologue, and the painting is well done. As others have said, it is indeed thought provoking. I especially like how you depicted the lion. You did a good job with his fur.

I love it when dreams inspire. I get so many ideas from my dreams. Problem is, only about 1 in 10 stand up to logic after I wake up and are worth using.

Gorgeous picture!

I agree with jboweruk, this is thought provoking.

Nice thought provoking piece there. Well done and a nice drawing. Faved.

It reminds me of Roch Voisine’s song, La Berceuse du Petit Diable.
