Uh, WOW. I read the DD description about the 'beast' ripping itself out, then looked at the painting, and thought, "Wow, that's one heck of a colorful crab. Wait, what? Did he paint over it and then let it emerge to snap a picture of it, or what?" Annnnd only then did I realize that it's NOT a fantastic photo of a nightmarish crab--you PAINTED that. Unbelievably cool.
I love this one...it says so much to me. It looks like one of many failed attempts of an invertebrate creature to give birth to a vertebrate creature...like a metaphor for the artist's struggle to create something better than himself. Well, to me at least. Superb technique too.

of development. and when i forget to i just wanna pound nails in my eyes! did that
recently actually,...uhm,...forget to get a scan,...NOT pound nails. heh.
