happy new year. Be ready to riot against things that curtail your freedom..

This is just a creature that got stuck in my head a few years ago, and I had to paint it. photoshop + tablet


Tell me what you think

too tired at the moment to fully register the meaning >>;

I guess I'll just have to settle with going "ooooooooo, nice work getting the amphibious skin right, that stuff's a beast." c:

Was this species wiped-out by the demand for baby grand pianos?

u have incredible concentration and patience.
if i had to pick someone to help me dig to china from a prison cell and then from china to europe [can't live in china], i would pick you, but of course you would have to agree to help, i wouldn't try and force you because you seem quite tough, being able to take baton bashing and everything.

if it's an octave that means he can play 'over the rainbow', which is nice.

thank you!
I promise I'd agree to help, but it sounds a bit ambitious. How about we do a collab, first?
Sometime. :)

perhaps you're right. i got a little carried away. the logistics of such a project are immense and it would indeed be a huge commitment. i couldn't ask you to sign up without knowing first if we'd gel as a team and on such short notice [i start digging in two days].
yes a collab would be a good preparatory step and we could talk about a giant digging project afterwards if things went well.
