I have been creating this type of art for years and never sharing. I have made the decision that this is the year to let it all out and find a path back to my more creative side.

I realize this will not appeal to a majority of my followers, so I say to you please bear with me I'll keep posting my regular work. It will be the vast majority of my post but from now on every now and them you will have to deal with some of my other work.

Hits deeper than a lot of your other work I've seen. At first glance it sets off an emotional response and I am searching for the meaning in the words. I could stare at this piece forever, taking in the colors, shapes, letters and things that I haven't discovered yet...and all of the elements of this piece dig up something inside of me.

This one reminds me of a painting by Pablo Picasso, I think it´s named "les demoiselles d´avignon" Really nice work!

This is fascinating! Agree a bit creepy, but I'd like to see more. Too good to keep to yourself and very inspiring to see you move way beyond the excellent work we see in your gallery!

Wow, obviously you are an accomplished photographer (it's hard to be selective with your photos usually), but you should have been releasing photo manips earlier. This is good, and I can't wait to see more. Keep up the great work!

Sorry I wasn't clear on this one: I meant to say that however unusual the pic was for your gallery, it is nice to look at.

My foot can get stuck quite thoroughly in my mouth at times, so apologies ^.^

I really like this myself. It's not your usual art, no-- but it's a very, very nice piece. I can feel the raw visceral emotion behind it - I wish I could read the words a little better, they're obscured a bit on the bottom-right side due to how dark it gets there, but that's my only criticism. The emotion in the expression and /especially/ in those eyes is astounding, and the choice to have the eyes looking out as if through holes in a painting is an excellent one. Two thumbs up.

It always feels good for an artist to break through comfort zones. The sky is the limit if you keep going. It feels difficult and awkward to do, but once you nail it......its worth it :) Nice job mark!

i nice refresher from your usual work, it's nice to see that you do stuff outside of magazine commissions. i think it's beautiful in a dark twisted sort of way.
