  • charming/crazy/wonderful

  • Love the disco wolf!

  • with six legs. i’ve seen this one in person!

  • Strange & wonderful. The Wolf wins.

  • I love the fantasy theme of these pieces and the diversity in work. The attention to detail shines through each piece and I almost see a story that links all the pieces together. I like the use of light to enhance the artworks and how their is an additional element on the wall that almost looks like the source point of where the main pieces came from or the forming of another. The wolf image is probably my favourite because you get sucked into this world that the light shapes help create.

  • segg

    amazing , i love the top one

  • lapetitefaon

    in an ideal world I would have the wolf in my living room

  • The last photo is amazing. I’m not so sure what it is exactly…but I can see some features that make it easier to see.

  • Joe

    The picture of the wolf is remarkable!
