I get the soap and the Spirited Away references...what are the monkeys from, and where is the inspiration for all the other characters?

Aw. No-Face tries so hard... and I totally did not notice the girls being eaten at first. You are certainly a master of detail.

Crazy???
I'd like to call it... ehm, ..., hmm...
Okey, there just isn't a strong enough word; crazy it is. But most of your paintings are, I guess =P ...? What is the avarage time it takes for you to get a painting sold, anyway?

my favorite obscura from this is Depp from Jarmusch's Dead Man. The best western no one ever saw. How can you beat Gibby Haynes getting a blowjob in a frontier alley, or Iggy Pop as a frontier wife.

Hey! It's got all my favorites, especially Frank from "Donnie Darko," Edward Scissorhands, and Carrier Fisher as Princess Leia in her sexiest costume EVER!

I'm in awe of your imagination and talent, my friend!

A cornucopia of cultural cuisine in this crafted creation of cranial concoctions, that creates a craving of critical capaciousness of colorful characters. David Rocks!!! [as Randy does a Victory lap around interior of den, incurring a series of rug burns]
