"i think you need to really look deep in the meaning of art, i am practiced, but what i do, only i understand. i think it is hard to make people ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND THE MESSAGE. i think these are easy to get"

"I love that this artist doesn't stay with just one theme all the time from the Hands of God saving the person to a woman with band aids all over her body except where she needs it. It has deep meaning and a fun feel because of illustration. Very good."

"Woah :0I am so happy that I have just discovered this artis :D"

"Pkay, the chic with the Bad-Aids is freaky and foolish. However, I LOVE the hand of God saving the swimmer!!!"
