DieRosengarten Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2004
lots of nice comments here... well , Iwon't be an exception! Your work is amazing, not only this painting, but all of them. This one kind of reminds me of some of Paul Klee paintings, but still it is very original! I'm sure some day we'll see your paintings in the best museums! Hope you continue to present us your astonishinh work :)

Very cool, I wish I could be at a party like that, it's cool how the outfits are patterns, I really like it, and so does my gal, you've layered the characters very well.

very interesting piece

Chaotic. Robust colors. It has a very abstract feel to it, as if proof that sometimes society is far to blind of what happens around it to see the beauty of the world.

Well, at any rate- you've done a wonderful job. Especially with the colors! They're delightful without being horribly painful on the eyes. The characters draw the eyes in a bit jerkily, but that adds to the chaotic flavor. Wonderful!:)

I adore your style. This is a very thoughtful piece of art, and I love it. Have to say, though, I like the full image better... ;)

This is incredible. So many different characters and symbols...wonderfully varied.

The fact that so many different and superficially unrelated(I'm saying superfically because I'd surely find a symbolic link between each of them if I tried hard enough...but since I cannot be in your head, I suppose trying hard enough would be pretty damn hard) are crammed together in one piece like this makes the whole picture incredibly. I especially love the full picture, the faceless superhero(is that a superhero?) makes the whole thing feel slightly more...chilling. :+favlove: I'd love a print of the full picture.

Great use of colour,and a crowded order that is immediately appealing =)
shebadapuddytat Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2003
Well the interview won't load for me...

So I'll just tell you what I see and hope I'm right...

It feels to me like you just drew this and painted it as it came... it has a kind of random feeling to it like many jilted thoughts that somehow connect to each other in ways that only you can know so that I'm forced to make up my own stories...

You art feels so timeless... it's often nostalgic in it's images... with a storybook sort of feeling in colour and style... it appeals to me in that way because it is such eye candy... yet at the same time I often feel a slight discomfort because of the distortions of your figures...

It is like the white Monty Python and the Holy Grail bunny... cute and friendly... then it rips you open in a gory manner!

A slight exaggeration but it certainly does become quite surreal at times...

Anyway, yeah, keep up the good work soldier! ;)

taoist Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2003
This is a beautiful picture! I deeply appreciate your style.
miamonster Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2003
you know, this is the most european-looking painting of everything you've done so far.maybe because of the houses in the background...

i like that even if the symbolism is sort of personal, there's still something everybody can find for themselves (gah someday i'll learn to make comprehensible sentences, and THEN my comments will be much more interesting...)
xandershanks Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2003
ALWAYS - you are amazing.

I write this rhyming poem and wanted to share it... it caught my attention like... that game when two images connect, and you have to flip the two cards over. The have, have not idea... rang a reference for me & so i make a valid attempt to build of the expression with a type of visceral flare of words... all original , of course. -- john.

Spin A rhyme Dinner time.
Candle light and wine.
Feeling hella fine.
Nickel, Dime and Chime in.
Rhymin my soul... Roll & Tighten
No fightin See. Not from me.
I open my mouth and out it comes.
It's like a beat of a hundred drums and noise.
Where DO i get this poise ?
3 Boys + Lots of toys, soy sauce &
I'm as lost as you in the sea of media.
That makes you feel needier.

Have's -- Have nots.

You got me tied into all these knots.
Sleepin on Cots and lots of love :: another.
Smother, Me Mother, I'm a diamond like no other.
Rally, kick it, knick it .. repair.
I really do care and stare if I wanna.
So what if she's a primadonna...
I'm out there too, wishing and fightin.
And bitin if i have to and I'll raft to you...
if I hafff-taa.. cuz your what I'm after.
Loyalty in numbers and dual slumbers and
one mumbles, theres no political machine.
You know what I mean ? It's a clean loyalty to
an ideal. SO I shpeel off into the architecture
of understanding and that's where it's landing.
Banding together, deal with the weather.
Who ever thought, I'd go out without a fight.
They had a loss for sight and vision, a collision.
Who gave me the decision? OH, it's not a decsion.
It's like fate gives you a role and, do play it.
And say what you will, it's just another fill
for a spot, fade away :: we got... two thirds.
You got the support from the nerds, that pack in
herds online... fine, sign and rewind. times up.
Who's next. Lets get veXXed and take it to the
next level and build upon that inner bevel.
Design, Architecture and we're off to the next
adventure of thought. Self taught and NOW, we GO.
Time to flow and apply, on the fly. Deny, you, me.
This is what will come to be. OH no. Brick walls
fall or I'll break on through, cuz that's just what I do for me & you.
I always like to see things Thru.

Oh, and I'm really lost on the significance of the tital.
maura Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2003
Good self portrait. So the central figure at the bottom is you? Maby the other characters are people/things that have effected you. I like the little child portrait with three eyes is you as well. Maby that's not it at all. Maby the figures are from previous works (the apple made me think of your adam and eve). Curiosities. Of course, this painting has great colours, the warm/cool contrast is a bit anarchical. +fav

kuroineko Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2003
o_o Neat. Oh, this is pretty random, and probably old news, but I saw a book at my school library that had a picture you did in it. I just thought it was so cool that a Deviant was so famous. =) Anyways, congrats on that!
