Sweet Smog Children by W.B. Livingston

This painting is one in my Sweet Smog Children series, named after a song by the band Smog. I wanted to do some work that was half-painted, half-sculpted and super creepy in the vein of Francis Bacon and David Lynch. These are figures that speak of inner-torment and pain.
