The Hive: inhabitant 1 - I love wasps. To me they are the sportscars of the insect world; fast, mean, and they even have a killer paint job.
I had to kill a hive over the summer, and afterwards I collected all the dead wasps. My intention is to paint all of them, then bind them all in a book.

Pure Evil - Made for an oxymoron class, this picture has caused me a lot of grief and even gotten me some hate mail.
This was not supposed to anger anyone, I am not trying to say anyhting offensive, I merely thought of the purest and evilest things I could and came up with this result.

The Rock Bottom Remainders
Tower of Song
Cold Weather Bringer - It always puzzled me why so many cultural deities and such never make the full transition to modern styles, so I took a rudimentary design of this spirit and gave it a more fresh feel. This is a kachina dancer from Hopi culture representing the Bringer of Cold Weather.
