    Another piece I found lying on my hard drive, this one from 2008. It was the first in a series about the objectification of women. I was going to put her in a cage. The second in the series was supposed to be a sphinx, very alluring until you noticed where she'd been chewing her paws around her shackles. I forgot what the third was. Probably a mermaid.

    I wish I had shared some of this stuff, even if I thought it was unfinished. The coloring on this pleases me greatly.

    No worries, Anton :) When I don't have the energy to maintain my filters, I also often say weird, socially awkward things I regret in hindsight.

    I'd like to finish this piece one day and maybe do its sister piece with the sphinx. The pictures are indeed supposed to illicit an "ooh!" response--until you look closer and realize that there's something very not right about the captivity of the monsters. You're supposed to walk away uncomfortable with yourself.

    Well, I hope we'll see if I can pull that second part of the equation off.
