Warm up {I always loved Alex Grey Part 2}

Warm up {I always loved Alex Grey Part 2}

Posted by Merc on 12/4/2008
 Featured by Blade
Well heres the first photos from our new photo booth. The piece is number two on the series and was a personal favorite of mine. Unfortunately while getting ready to pack it, it met with a little impact which left it, well ya. This will not be the official number2 but will be the model for it instead. The concept for the piece is the eye of perception. The ear plugs are free moving and the head did survive and I'm rebuilding the rest now but still wanted to share. You can't win em all. Any way stay after your dreams. Peace
