I would describe most of your work as "extreme"...and I mean that in a very good way. I am in awe.

That is an angry looking tiki mask. Fruit I expected to be rotting, skulls, the yin-yang siamese twins that control the fate of the universe, or at least understand it. Beautiful piece.

It is strange because the work is printed at the same moment by temptations and by fears

Maybe it's because of the story, "Something Wicked This Way Comes," but I've always felt an undercurrent of danger, evil and debauchery in a circus/carnival setting. The people who work those gigs are rightfully reclusive (because of the mistrust of wanderers by townspeople), but that doesn't take a thing away from their air of forbidden mystery and danger.

I think your image in the foreground of skulls and strawberries is the perfect analogy for the carney atmosphere. Nice work (as usual), Dave!

Skulls, strawberries, and Siamese Twins - what's not to love? Especially the sibiliance.

So e-vile! :headbang: I really like how they whole thing has the disturbing circus vibe but yet one side is even more twisted and evil than the other. Subtle but nice! I don't know of there is a long drawn out explanation for it of you felt like just representing the darkest of the drak side of creepy carnival atmosphere. Once again I love your style!!!
