  1. Thank you Buck. This is another one that started out with a few ideas sketched out at my desk at work on a piece of paper from the printer. It grew and grew and eventually became the finished piece itself.

  2. Thank you Terresa. It took a ghastly amount of time, but it became oddly soothing to work on this. I like the sense of scale, and that tiny eye in the vast bulk of the body.
