This one’s really popular around the web for some reason.  I’ve found this guy popping up in all kinds of places.  Some sites never even credited me while others disected the piece for interpretation that was nowhere in the ball park.  Oh well.  Thought this would be a fitting visual to bring back to celebrate Eckovision hitting the 100,000 hit mark. 

My thanks to everyone who’s visited, purchased my books, and commented on these strange pieces.  I hope to have some new ones soon.  Time will tell 🙂
