Before .The. Seven by Meeq Before .The. Seven by Meeq
When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.' And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.

Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation." (Matthew 12: 43-45)

Before .The. Seven- Written by Meeq

Before the darkness seduces my dawn
Before the prince of the air creates the clouds
Before my lakes of sorrow stretch into oceans
Before my smile falls into a frown
Before these branches beckon a blossom
Before the seven strip away every strand of my soul
Before my last wing withers into nothing
I call on your name, The only name I've ever known...

I was sitting here thinking I should ask what is going on in that head of yours, when you create images like this but then I realised I could just read the artist statement. Very cool idea and awesome poem, good job man.

Hey Justin! LOL! My head is a pretty strange place, but yes that statement and poem were the inspiration for the art. I really appreciate your kind words and I'm glad you enjoyed this piece! :D

Dude, seriously, Your art is some of the coolest, creepiest, most original oddly beautiful stuff I have seen in a while. Great job on this. All the color and detail, and the fact that it has an almost graffiti-like look to it draws my attention to it even more! :clap: Bravo!!

i just remembered deviantart after over a year, and what is the first thing i think of? "well wonder if Dave has anything new up." and as before here is another lovely drawing of yours to envy.
love the compositon and the pig demon things (evil boobies! ew!)
how did you find that quote?

Meeq Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2007
Hey ANTHONY! What's up with you dude?? How sad is it that I only have one new deviation to show after a whole year!! Hahaha....I've been waiting to hear from you...While I was composing this I was saying to myself..I think Anthony will like this...yea, he'll dig it...haha, Who doesn't like evil boobies..As for the quote, My father and I were having a conversation about How someone falls into a temptation..then realized that they've screwed up and repent. And then after a while the tempation might sneak back up, and when you let it in again, it get's an even stronger headlock over your soul. He quoted me that scripture from the book of Matthew in the Bible and I was like...OOooOO man!!.. That could make a sick concept for a piece of art, and so here we are..LoL.

i can't wrap my brain around this!!!! its bitter sweet, because i can only imagine the type of work you'd be producing if you were still my partner in crime at sva!! but at the same time, your music career is really starting to take off!!

geeze dude, i can't. this is so insane, i love it to death!! and your poems always go so well with your pieces. its like a tight little bundle of AWESOME!

i'm 200% confident you made the right decision, brother! it took a lot of guts to change your career direction, and knowing you this long, I can confidently say you're one of the most conscious and well-rounded people that I know. Without a doubt, you did what was best for yourself.

Yeah man, same here! It's an honor to know and receive feedback from you. As for wetting my appetite before spidey 3 comes out, I now have 2 milestones awaiting the end of the school year!!
