  1. Hmm...have you considered making t-shirts printed with these? They'd sell really well, I think...

  2. Hannah, I had not thought of that at all although it is an intriguing idea. I still keep meaning to investigate ways to turn some of these images into quality prints but that seems to keep languishing on the backburner while I work on the art. In some ways, I will be grateful when this project is complete and I can concentrate on some of these other things. But your suggestion is a very good one and will be added to that short list. Thanks!

  3. Love this image! The layering and transparency is just amazing. And the colors are really great, too--it feels both modern and old-fashioned at the same time. I think it's the detailed rendering of the organs combined with the more graphic elements of the image that convey that sense. Keep it up!

  4. Thank you Rudy, the found paper works really well with this one. If you look closely you can see the phrase "The clock in your body" which fits marvellously well with the text.
