I assume he was a bit of a troubled man, and if he was, then this illustrates him wonderfully.

Once again you have managed to create something amazing :] keep up the wonderful work. You should come to America sometime and host like a ...... lets all paint together thing. I would kill to get some pointers from you, like in the video you had a while back for the album cover you did, "if you can melt it you probably should" loved that idea lol

It's already well known fact that creativity and madness like to be tag team on the ring. And by this I suppose, you are bit crazy aren't you? :)

Wow! This really caught my attention. I love the concept. and the expression in his eyes. it definitely describes how he felt while he was becoming deaf - the pain, sorrow,depression... This is what I call art!I'd suggest it for a daily deviation if I could :)
