    I’ve never seen an artist try so hard. What a stretch.

  9. Master Oche

    Gee, I love the happy sling shot, but then the Darl Angel is good, and the Little Red Ridding Hood and The elehant and the mouse are my children favorites, but the highway patrol, guns kill, and dealy fire speak by th self. The shadow elephant doesnt translate well. In general is an awesome job

    @Coltrane – I thought the hands one was a tree, some sort of tree of life reference. But I’m often wrong :-)
