i drag my feet like everyone

Why do I find a broken bench so moving? Yes, because I'm a bit odd. And, yes, I'm a hyper-sensitive fool. But, apart from that, why is it so moving?

And, one more thing; whatever happened to Gomez? They were amazing.

Oh wowee I love it! Zooming in on my iPod isn't enough. I need to view this on the big screen. Loving the sense of depth in your drawings of late. A treat for the eyes.

The detail of your work consistently blows my mind.

There's a certain beauty in decay and broken things -- if we allow ourselves we can identify with it even more easily than with the perfect, the new and the unmarred. Our things, our selves and our civilizations decline with a remarkable beauty. You have to capture it or you're not describing the whole story. Beautiful work!

A broken bench is moving like anything else has been a silent witness to many important things, but never recognized as this, and left ungratefully in the lap of the gods.

Amazing drawing by the way :)

A broken bench has a story, it has history...it tells you about all the people that sat there...I love broken things, especially broken houses...beautiful work, as usual!
