Entering Limbo by ErikShoemaker Entering Limbo by ErikShoemaker
for SlashTHREE: New Era

This piece is part of a book which was exclusively created by the slashTHREE collective for their presentation at the art&design festival OFFF. The book is now for sale in our online shop: [link]

The book tells a story of the different stages of a person's life from really ugly to a wonderful future: decay - descent - struggle - ascent - future.

My work which is a personal depiction of the so called "limbo" area can be found in the "descent" section of the book.

A good 45 hours of work went into this one, so it's probably the most time consuming piece in my gallery right now. It really was a pain in the ass working on it because I couldn't stand looking at it anymore. :lol:



thanks a lot to:

Truly remarkable on how chaos can be formed through the living and the dead. I guess that Limbo is a place where everything can become everything, as you can tell from within the artist's picture. For something so 'fake' it can be a living nightmare, but then once encountered you see it's a reality. However, I still picture the world of Limbo being a dark place where no colour is traced. Although, this artwork shows what living hell Limbo can be, amazing yes, yet would you like to live in a place like this? I really hope you don't.
Overall, you did an amazing job on this, I'm impressed.
