Cover Your Ears To That Tick Tick Ticking by xiao-speck Cover Your Ears To That Tick Tick Ticking by xiao-speck
Although in truth we kept much more than time, we were often called the Timekeepers. 
There used to be plenty of us, enough to keep the wheels of reality turning. And circle after circle after circle we used to go.

There are no more Timekeepers now... 

My brother and I, we were both Timekeepers once. But that was a long, long time ago. So long ago, I had lost track of that which I was once responsible of keeping. 
Perhaps we did something wrong, perhaps none of us kept Time the way it wanted to be kept. And in the end, it spared no one, not even my brother. 
I remember how, when Time's laughter came flooding around the corner, we tried so hard, so hard, to stop its merciless jests. We though that since we had the power to keep something moving, we could also make it stop. But as more of us fell and rotted away, I realized that we weren't truly the keepers after all...

Who were we, to think we could bend the knees of time? Foolish, foolish, so foolish.  
But oh well... Like I said, there are no more Timekeepers now.

I always get super excited when I can feel a story coming up, although I know it'll probably get forgotten long before I actually do anything bout it lol. 
So yeah, this drawing(and the weird little bit of writing up there) is kind of a preview of the story I'm thinking bout right now~ 
Hehe, and like always, it all looks super depressing XD

I like the Dali-esque melting timepieces motif, and the dice in the eye socket.....
