I really wanted the Abyss to be void-like and beautiful. Despite what the initial reaction to her form and dynamic position on the page, she is not evil, nor does she represent evil. This image represents two beings, in ways past and future, finding each other.
In my personal projects I work with concepts like numbness, bitterness, and/or depression; all states of being I know well. A goal is to raise awareness about the dangers of living in these places—and hopefully help others make better choices than I did. I always believe in hope, even when it seems there might not be any. If there is hope for me there is hope for others; and there is.
