I'm on the hunt, I'm after you...

I had this idea of a Hunter image, but maybe with a bit of storytelling involved.  At first glance, a Hunter stalks his prey.  But there's more.  This is not a Hunter in the usual sense; no bow, no spear...but swords instead.  This isn't about food, it isn't about capture;  it's about death.   Blood has been shed, and this hunter bears arms to slay his quarry...for vengeance most likely.  But as he closes in on his prey, so his prey draws ever closer to him.   Who then, is the Hunter..and the Hunted?
It occurs to me that being a freelancer is very much like being a Hunter.  You're out stalking the wilds of the world,  portfolio/weapon in hand hoping to bag that elusive Client who will provide sustenance for you and your least until the next hunt.   Interesting world, innit?


  1. I guess the sword hunter doesn't realise he is the hunted....maybe his client is not as haunting and deadly as he looks. : )

  2. Ah, but if you notice...his thumb slowly pushes his sword out of the hilt...does he know more than it appears? Is he really so unsuspecting?
