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.
