An aquarium for his thoughts.


  1. Well, I'm really trying. But if you are posting while I'm desperately trying to work up the overdue comments I'LL NEVER GET FINISHED! WUAAAAHHHRRRR!

    Nevertheless, I like this pic a lot. It's a little bit different. Has some morbid quality to it. Great!

  2. yeah, you are too fast. Always get a bad conscience, but your tempo is as amazing as your style or your ideas.

  3. I don't come here for like two or three days and you got all these awesome posts up!

    Your stuff is a great inspiration to me.. keep it up!

    Thanks for sharing

  6. Hello everybody! I'm glad that you like it!
