Stay a while...
Stay a while...
oh my god
Finally done with my watercolor project!
this is so clever i love it
this woman is flirting with the personification of death, exactly like the saying ‘flirting with death’, except it’s been made into a visual pun. if you look really really carefully you can even see a random collection of potentially lethal items next to her, perhaps(?) implying that she is endangering her own life by using or being around them. so clever. i love it.
Okay but now you explained it and your explanation makes me want to punch myself. You don’t have to look “really, really” close, those things are in PLAIN, OBVIOUS SIGHT. Bluh.
if you look really really close you can see the woman is having an intimate conversation with this grim reaper figure presumably in a bar or some other drinking establishment with a lit stick of dynamite on the surface next to her. this could possibly be a very very subtle play on the phrase ‘flirting with death’. so clever. i love it.
If you look really closely you can see a sign that says to shut the fuck up.
oh, i understand now! it’s a play on the populat phrase ‘flirting with death’, meaning to be risky or dangerous in one’s choices and actions! if you look closely, there are lots of dangerous items in the picture. haha funny. thank u tumblr user cooldudebro!
thank you mr. bamyasi (if i may call you that ?) the trick to seeing through this very clever and very understated visual pun is to look very very closely. i too initially did not fully grasp the complex meaning behind the weapons, the ‘very pale man in black’ and the words of the woman, so i added my comment to inform those who might come after me. im glad i was able to help. have a great day! :)
Buy half-price lingerie and model it in your bedroom for yourself. Feel like you have a secret because you’re wearing black, see-through underwear while talking to your teacher about your next assignment. Glance at attractive strangers on public transportation. When they look back, hold their gaze for a few seconds. Get off the train and never see them again, riding the high of your mutual minute of understanding. Keep yourself busy with the things your relationship used to keep you from doing. Practice a hobby. Learn a new language and feel how good it is to say “goodbye” in a new way. Fuck yourself in the shower. Begin to appreciate sex in a way you couldn’t before. Accept more dinner invitations with people who spark your interest, romantically or not. Sing along to pop songs without guilt. Buy yourself flowers to tuck behind your ear. Laugh easily. Let the ache hollow out more room for you to grow. When you catch your ex on the street six months later, smile when they tell you you’ve changed. Consider telling them you are a wildfire that burned over the places they touched. Consider reminding them you cannot know every space in someone by running your fingers over them. For a second, think about asking them to take you back and then laugh because you are no longer the same person they held. You are a wildfire and the world is made of brush. Go ahead and burn.
