Heh......... I read your story, studied your art............ and it triggered a mild flashback
I liked it. It's original. It's not serious, though the topic is, kinda, in a "deep", nonsensical way.
The writing style reminds me of some artsy, black and white, transcendental, drug-induced french film..... except, with vibrant colorful cartoony animals.... The story-telling, texture and stylistic art are an interesting mix and, surprisingly, communicate the concept well. The use of your abstract art panels to convey the ethereal notions, were a nice touch.
Though, a bit of a long read.... 8 pages was a bit much for the concept, without enough of a punchline to support the weight.......... could've used a bit of editing, or more shrooms, to keep the hallucination interesting.
