    Note duly noted. I guess I drew too many of these things during an obsessive phase in 5th grade. Fortunately my hormones kicked in and I switched to sketching multitudes of scantily clad pneumatic young women.

    The snarky one-worder was uncalled for, and I apologize.

    The two heads in the bottom left corner remind me of Kashira, the three bouncing green heads in Miyazaki’s Spirited Away. As a side note, I’ve always thought that they’d be an awesome idea for a set of three upholstered footstools/pouffes for someone with mad craft skillz. Anyone up for the challenge?
