Hey there! I came across some prints of yours the other day at a comic museum in San Fransisco, and I must say, I was absolutely enamored. My particular favorite was the one entitled "Adam and Eve"; I just felt so moved by the beautiful symbolism and artistic talent. Each mark and stroke on the paper just seems so natural, yet simplistically elegant in a way I can't describe. :heart:
Thank you for your kind words about my work! Glad you enjoy it.
