NEW: High quality prints of this image now available for sale

An image I made for Diesel's official Facebook page (in 2011).

Freedom is not far. I intended to represent a girl walking above clouds
from one pyramid's top to another. This is a picture I took from a plane
a few weeks ago when I traveled to Italy. I also made the quick sketch.

This drawing is, in some way, related to that other one.

>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture: "Balancing act:
A tight rope performer walks among the clouds in this moonlit fantasy"
(Kerry McQueeney, The Daily Mail, Sept. 2011)

Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera
images in progress (small animation and original music).

Freedom Is Not Far

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Traveling to a strange star
Is in our hope and dream
Its freedom is not too far
In the space river stream

Clouds of hope there drifting by
Like white pyramids tops
Castles in the far-off sky
Never images stops

Walking on to the near moon
Our beginning steps where
But we will though be going soon
To stars everywhere

Flying across the space dim sea
To in between dark place
There is trance for you and me
The make-believe ways

Walking and holding balance
Is very hard to do
But if you have acquaintance
With dreams it's up to you

Clouds in our times travel
All's within our own stair
New thoughts in times marvel
Are soon all coming here
