  7. Anais knew what she was talking about.
    you illustrate the concept well, I like the element of vagueness you often have in your work. It's vagueness with a direct force to it.

      I hope always that viewer will be not lost in the vague colors, forms, lines, structures of my drawing and will not leave the page before it is decoded :)
