    maybe it was yr dry sense of humor that prompted the long hiatus in posting? but why have you revealed my latest tattoo, so new it’s still humid…

    Hm, it won´t be done with a travel sickness tablet in this case. On the other side, minor mutations aren´t the exciter in 2015. And shouldn´t 8 arms, whirling over the sketchbook, lead to a totally new experience of artistic virtuosity? Keep calm and carry on.

    I didn’t say anything….not me….not dry at all.
    Yes, that seems like so much fun.

    I said it, I meant it, I’m here to represent it! More tentacles than brushes…j’accuse! (as I hide in an octopus cage.)
