I stumbled across this piece today and it caught my attention because I've been working on a similar project (all paper though).  *sigh* Now my piece doesn't feel as original anymore.  I don't know if this is by Terry Gilliam or if it's a homage to him, but I like it.  As for my project, I've spent several months looking for the main piece (a woman's head) and I finally found it a few weeks ago. Hopefully, it will be done soon. In the meantime, I've also toyed with starting an art journal.  Not really sure how that will pan out since I feel odd committing a good piece of work to a paper canvas.  It doesn't feel permanent and I'm afraid it will age or tear easily.  I think I'll just stick with cardboard.  It's served me well thus far.

I found that I could say things with color and shapes that I had no words for.

"...The truth is that most of us are merely working for survival. Do not feel guilty if your job is not your passion...Sing your ass off at karaoke, start writing that novel, or knit those damn mittens. It is only when we give up on our passions that we are truly defeated. Your passions may never result in an all-consuming, multimillion-dollar career, but that is not the goal. The goal is to have a balanced life."
