Your whole gallery is really interesting. Your style reminds me a lot of Odilon Redon's work. That is something to be proud of!

+excellent. oh, congrats for the UA Feature, btw. this deserves the attention. the etched and dry-point lines are very well balanced, in fact i cannot see a single wasted line despite the crisscrossing chaos... everything is working to the image's best advantage. love the pure black and almost void eyes of the head-skull-boy... and the dog-within-the-dog, which almost seems like a failed sketch drawn over... but feels like finding a concealed clue. good job :nod:+

Your ideas about this piece make sense. If you see the aftermath of a battle, so be it. As a rule I don't like to divulge personal meanings behind my work. Everyone reads imagery differently; everyone's interpretation is both unique and valid. I subscribe to the belief that if I come right out and state that my work means this or that, than the viewer's personal analysis is tainted.

Thank you for your comments and I look forward to more of your interpretations of my work.
