Misfit (Inktober Day-18)

#Day18 #Inktober


Illustration on ‘Misfit’ #InktoberPromptDay18(Inspired from “Metamorphosis” by Franz Kafka)

On the word Misfit, the first thing that comes on my mind is the famous classic story- The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka. The story of Gregor Samsa(or the man that transformed into a bug)strongly influenced me and it was one of the very first bizarre books I read, that sparked the taste for Kafkaesque books. Although the story was sad, I have tried to present its theme in today’s Inktober illustration in a comical way- that is very much the reality. The normal world has no room for exceptions and always quietly eliminates foreign objects. Anyone who is lacking is disposed of.

P.S. Have you read this book?

“So the manual for life already existed. It was just that it was already ingrained in everyone’s heads, and there wasn’t any need to put it in writing. The specific form of what is considered an “ordinary person” had been there all along, unchanged since prehistoric times I finally realized.”
