Your paintings remind me of Giorgio de Chirico, or Yves Tanguy - two surrealist painters I deeply love. In a place such as yours, it's no surprise your work is so weird and mysterious - really beautiful!!!

There's no story along with this one. I wanted to draw something, and I did what I could with what I had. 'Nuff said!

Hey - sorry for the late response. There's no limit to the number of entries you submit, but since the entries are going to go up for public voting, there's a chance that if you submit more than one piece you'll lessen your chances of winning. I know...so complicated
I'd like to submit my illustration of the toy She-Ra for your consideration. THere isn't much of a 'helping others" story behind it, except, perhaps a very small, small aspect in the idea of the conception of the piece:
I had a lifelong friend who was in an emotionally abusive relationship, and watching her devolve from an enthusiastic and enigmatic woman into a submissive, scared little girl that ran to meet every need of the new "man" in her life was sickening.
Watching this, after all the years that I had known her, was very difficult. Especially since she refused to see any other angle on the situation.
These were the dolls that we used to play with when we were growing up in Colorado. I am in NYC now, but when I thought of her a couple years back, I was moved to begin a revised illustrated series of a doll that was centered around a very strong, very independent and beautiful woman and her friends: She-Ra.
Anyhow, that's my story. I had created several other illustrations of other dolls from the line and the series is titles "She-Ra, ReVamped!"
I hope my friend learns that she can revamp too.

Here is one link:
Since it has had over 300 downloads, I'm sure it has been used in many places other than those of which I am aware.
I'm having a lot of trouble working out how to get an image up here, sorry. I hope this works.
