Just having mickey mouse on the sword is good enough for me. But I also find the colors appealing and the space just jammed pack with goodies to inspect.

The texture on the lollipops is practically perfect. It's so glossy I could spit. I love it.

Cool!! I wasnt happy with the top section of it at first--because the painting was so big and it was taking forever/just wanted to get it done-so I just finished the top part quick with dark shapes...but looking at it now its pretty cool:) Glad ya like it!!!!!

Hysterical, disturbing. So well done...as I've come to expect. You've got to be very patient to lay all this out and execute it so well.

Fucking jebus Dave!
This is amazing! Your use and knowledge of colour and the way you use it is so skillfully done.
Theres always so much to look at in all your paintings, without them being to busy. A real treat to the eyes and mind.
Great work as always!

Iv'e been busy for the past 3 hours going through my inbox. Im determined to clear it this weekend!

Im so glad that its not a DD-I just had one on the 31st and my hand still hurts from typing"Hey totally wow cool awesome thanks" a zillion times-Haaaaa! Ummm-I think this painting is ok-It woulda looked cooler on a shorter canvas because theres really nothing spectacular going on above her etc..I should have drew/thought about it more but I just was desperate to paint!!-my bad..Thanks for the props Hill-Your insight kinda validates it into a legit piece for me-Shankss!!!;)

Mickey is getting impaled above her head and there's a creepy carnival (a reoccuring image I noticed ;))... the carnival makes me think of that poem/movie "something wicked this way comes", which fits well with the rest of the image... I think the space is aptly used ;)

(and I read your interview... intersting!)
