Blah blah

Hypochondriac retirees, well-heeled but gone to seed, living amongst the red dust swirling through the militarized suburbs of Palm Springs, California, avail themselves of glittering, gutted and glitched out medical facilities, desperately trying not to die of heart disease, cancer or pandemic XI.

Prompt

Asymmetrically composed render of an old American man — a superannuated, sunburned, grizzled alcoholic disfigured by spider veins — cowering inside a mid-century modern living room at dusk, set within a dystopian Palm Springs of mid-century architecture and desert modernism, enshadowed mountains in the background, violet twilit sky above, haze of red-orange atmospheric dust.
