It's nice to see someone who isn't doing the same tired, old art. He's really treading on new ground. I'm not sure from where his genius stems, but it's clear that he sculpts round characters, not flat ones. I think they should have a celebration for him—a real blow-out party—so he keeps plugging away at his unique craft. Admittedly, appreciating the characters takes a certain suspension of disbelief, but once the ideas gain traction, he's really on a roll. I would think these would be fairly heavy and tough to lug around, but I'd like to pick one up to place along a white wall in my house. I hope that the price doesn't become too over-inflated, however. (I'm truly sorry; I just couldn't help myself).
