1-05. Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease

Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.

About the illustration
Decided to do the crack idea some other time because it was a personal joke. Encephalopathy is brain-related disease, and one of the effects of dementia is the loss of memory. Add that with ‘spongi’ (or rather, a sponge), and it’s a brain riddled with holes.

The brain is with holes and trying to fly away to leave everything behind is my interpretation of memory loss. However, it is grounded by being chained to a metal ball with a chain.

The brain, supposedly being the real-life element in this illustration, is painted, whereas the other elements being the imaginary ones are in a sketchy and messy style, and are transparent. They, unlike the brain, do not have shadows.

Digital painting and sketchy style. Brush and Pencil tool in Adobe Photoshop CS. 

Hit counter.

Page 196, entry 16: 
Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease –
n. a type of spongi-form, encephalopathy affecting human beings, characterized by progressive dementia. [named after H. G. Creutzfeldt, 1885-1964, and A. Jakob, 1884-1931, German physicians]

Personal opinion (about the entry)
Research required, but I kind of have a crack idea on what to draw :D The crack idea will be posted when I have time to work on it. Sorry D;

    To potatoh, renchan and choo,

    potatoh, it must be the sponge. Is it? :D
    renchan, uh-huh. My sentiments exactly. Sorry, not done with the crack idea. This illustration itself took a few hours on and off. Painting a brain was unexpectedly, A LOT of hard work D;
    choo, lol. i can’t image it though. You play Maple? Since when? And it’s not dumb at all. Haha, different people have different interpretations, no? :D
