Daily Feed -- #WickedLitWednesday
Jimmy looked at his daily feed. The beauty of it distracted him from the biting cold. The snow that wanted to gnaw at his bones.
His eyes reflected the glowing representation of life in front of him. Opportunity that felt so distant yet could still be touched when reaching out with his fingers. He could almost smell it, even in these howling winds.
Jimmy took a step forward. The boy didn’t even hear him, so intent was he on that strange device in his hand. It made it much easier for Jimmy to hunt.
Time to taste his daily feed.
I’ve been loving the art of Boris Groh for a while now and this piece particularly caught my attention. The figure in the background looks less menacing to me than the boy on his phone for some reason. Maybe it’s my dislike for what phones can do to us, distracting us to the point of being zombies. I’m not sure. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to do a little bait and switch story where the reader thinks Jimmy is the boy, but only realises at the end that Jimmy is the beast. If you like this image, there’s another similar one below I think you’ll dig too. You can buy his art in wall prints here too, so get on it if you’re a fan like me. Or, follow him on Instagram here.
