    As always, a beautiful shot. The cursive script on the top & bottom is stunning, it's so recognizable as your own. Would be interesting to see if it could be adaptable to a full font...

    Thanks @Claire! It's definitely on my long-term to do list. Because of its uniqueness, I would really like to take my time with its development at some point and sell it at a decent price—possibly above entry-level. I'd much rather sell less copies and see it used very tastefully in smart application rather than have it become ubiquitous or overused like the next "Lobster," and misused, if you know what I mean. ;)

    I'm probably a bit too much of a purist!

    @Ryan Rushing: I think that what @Sean McCabe is referring to is his creating the word "block" using only negative space. Technically, the forms of those letters aren't drawn onto the page itself but are merely suggested by the block he filled in around them.

    It's a subtle technicality, sure, but it's an effective reminder of the overall message to those that notice it.

    I like your perpective and observation, @Kurt Madsen. I have a feeling @Ryan Rushing was just being his crafty self and playing clueless to insinuate that he does in fact already pretend it does not exist and therefore supposedly knows not what I speak of. ;)

    @Sean McCabe Haha. Of course. Migraine-addled brain here. I know it's art (and thus personally subjective), but was my interpretation accurate to what you intended?

    I'll answer with a story:

    My dad used to tell me how back in high school, he'd make random sketches and illustrations of people. These could be from his head, or maybe a photo, or something else, but generally they were just generic portraits. Sometimes people who saw his sketches would say "Oh! Is that [name of some famous person]?" And my dad would say "Yeah!"

    It wasn't.

    Moral of the story: Just create, and let people come up with their own meanings. Often times different people will get deeper meanings out of different works. I think it's awesome.
