This is what journal-keeping should look like! I'm amazed at the design sense on display here, not to mention how cool the individual elements are. The man with the snake necklace is really creepy, yet fantastic. And I think it's disturbingly appropriate that you end with a skull on a platter right after I was speculating about your death.

Welcome back!

hey, Phantom! The man with the snake is my depiction of Bima or Bhima, from a Balinese Hindu painting of the Mahābhārata, and the rather strange skull is the rushed sketch I did as I stared at one of the controversial "Hobbit" skulls from the Liang Bua caves, in Flores island. Strangely it's displayed half-hidden by a couple of massive escalators in Jakarta's National Museum. Go figure...
Hey, thanks for the nice words AND for showing up again.

Very nice! I love the leaves. Thanks again for letting me see your Shiki sketchbook in NYC. I am amazed you ink with a rollerball.
