daisy was a restless girl
who hadn't slept since she was born

because inside her sleepy head
a strange disease took form

a dozen dizzy mini daisies
would burst out of her brain

a dozen daisies grew out of one
they'd scream and shout and rage

they bled and blahed, and kept her up
daisy thought she'd lost every mind

until one good night
when she shot all herselves
and shut every mouth and eye


***

I like how death and sleep are closely related, though I usually prefer the latter.

Grandma was taking a written driving test in chinese, and while waiting, I randomly thought that the idea of someone shooting themselves in the dark was particularly sad. Daisy grew from there!

Phil does a semi-Vincent Price impression here in semi-honour of Tim Burton, who is definitely an influence on at least some of the things I do!

@01:32The Vincent Price voice is noice :XD: NOICE.
Anyway, I think this film offically makes you my favourite artist on dA. The animation is wonderful. I like it's disturbed humour - it's serious message that doesn't take itself too seriously, if you get me. :) It takes something special to make people care about a character in a film less than two minutes long.
Awesome work, dude :heart:
