I was intrigued at both the simplicity and yet the complexity of this wonderful piece. I find myself returning to visit it again and again. Here’s a link to find out more about Nathanael and see more of his work:

UPDATE:  The new book is near completion.  Shooting for a September release date.  Working title right now is “Madhouse Theater”.  It’s been a lot of fun coming up with some new “visual nightmares” for this project and tribute to the horror genre.  Can’t wait to start sharing some of my new pieces as the “Boo” season is just around the corner 🙂

Note:  Be sure to click this image twice to see a blown up image for an easier read.

Here’s a cool visual by Blind3y3Design.  I think it speaks volumes about slowing down a bit.  Think I’m gonna relax now 🙂
