I don't know what you mean by sloppy though. Do you mean my numbered pictures like "7. Heaven" etc?
At first sight, these pictures look much too simple to really get much attention, as if they were thrown together in most-likely less than ten minutes.
But when you look into the pictures a little more, study some of the things mentioned/drawn, and just.. think. When you look pat your casual eyes, into your artist's perception, you suddenly unerstand everything.
Every one of these pictures delivers a message, even if it's unintended by the artist. In fact, most artists don't even know they've delivered a message or not, especially with my personal works.
Take your cake picture, for instance. At first - a rather quick, if you would - glance, it's simply a humurous picture out of the blue. But when yo throw away those visuals and look into what it is, you see an inspiring thought or two.
In that particular drawing, the message itself is old but well-thought, known as "Strive to be different." or "Be yourself." If you want to eat your cake with two hands, who the hell's stopping you?
So basically, sloppy means that feeling of the drawing when basically overlooked - Simple, uninteresting, lazy. Listening only to what the story says, not delving deep into the beautiful arwork that it can, and was MEANT to be.
