I know I have already fanboyed out a bit on your actual Art Portal comments...but I wanted to throw some in here and make it official that I refuse to be caught under the wheels of NG apathy.
Your stuff just amazes me.
In some cases it's the art itself...the way it might be colored, shaded or composed...but in the case of this horse...it's more just the idea behind it that blows me away. Like...what the hell were you thinking at the moment you decided to make a horse out of a box, (or vice-versa)?
NO ONE DOES THAT! And yet...it's fantastic. And not in some hipster, fuck the establishment type way...where just BECAUSE it's weird, it's cool. No...this is obviously the product of a dangerously creative psyche...and it's just one, tiny facet of your artistic personality, judging from all of your other incredible work. Your talent is nothing short of pure brilliance...so thanks for sharing with the rest of us.
Wow, thanks a lot man. Its really great to know poeple are liking what I do.
As for the horse; its a giraffe ;)
The making it out of a box thing was just something that came to me randomly, call it inspiration. I started this one out with a pretty much predetermined idea of how I wanted it to look. I got it in my head that I wanted to print a poster, then the general idea of having a wide border around the poster popped up; and I liked it. From that; the idea of having something pushed into a square came up quite quickly, the giraffe was an easy choice because they seem to be too big to begin with. If you watch a giraffe drink; its hard to believe that it is an actual animal that evolved that way.

Wow, great job man. It wonderfully weird and crazy. And kind of beautiful actually. This would make a great print.
Thanks, Ive been trying to make my art more "out there", less straightforward. Its good to see that working out. I actually drew that one because I wanted something I could print; I drew it on an especially large canvas, and even googled some available poster formats, especially for that.

That's a pretty rad idea.. I think the front left leg could use a bit of refineing but it a cool picture that's for sure..
Thanks man, with the front left leg do you mean the one on the left for us; or the giraffes left front leg? I personally think both could use some refining.
