Wooow, this is something else.

You know, I think one of the things I admire most about your work is your ability to work with monochrome without losing even a bit of definition-- the forms are still so distinct in spite of the limited colors because your command of value rocks

About one of your comments above, I definitely see the energy of your linework in this, especially in those figures along the bottom. But yes, this is extremely dynamic and those sharks look mean as hell, and I am quite pleased that it's available as a print.

do want!
if I could, I'd buy this one from you. At any cost.
The reason I like your work is, amongst others, is that there's this pleasant blend of realistic texture, on the sharks for example, and a mix of sharp edges and outlines that gives you something to grasp.
