Nice. Milk Thistle? Clever analogy.

Hey T
Thanks for the kind word.


John, this is lovely.

John Cox:

Hey Yo

Thanks for the encouraging word.

I think there's fascinating depth when I combine classic drawing techniques with airy, subtle layers of symbolic content. The results allow for a wide interpretation and can also zoom in on a single perspective. Every time I see this attempted in publications (I certainly didn't invent this design concept), it mostly gets botched with heavy-handed design and ugly lighting. I prefer a more Eastern design sense; light and effective.
