Hey - this look like my friend the yucatan string elephant! You have string elephant too in Englands?

My string elephant, he live in the trees just outside my kneepit. Him very shy, don't like come to the fiestas. Maybe they lost relatives or something?

Next time you see be sure say big hello from Pablo and his mexican cousins.

Adios amiga!

I really like what you've done here...lots of energy and a nice asymmetrical composition. The eyes are eerie!

I love the patterns in this. Really interesting!

Twisselman said...

I think this is an anteater... looks like anteater lips to me. And they can be very unnerving, especially if they are staring at you with that tongue darting in and out. Great swirls. And wonderful composition.

I love the simple pattern you've created from shuch simple lines.
