And welcome back young lad!

Heath Robinson viewed through a glass darkly (that's meant to be a compliment to your draughtmanship btw)

So, the voyage. A ball of string that needed to be unwound before you knew what you were getting. And as the navigator's hat is falling over his eyes, perhaps he is allowing himself to go places, experience things he didn't think he would.

A sacrificial knife, but who knows what is being sacrificed. It's not the trampled, flattened man. Or is it the floating man.

Did you float through this experience, slightly befuddled, waiting for some sort of sacrifice that never came?

I'm either destined to be a great dream-reader, or the next Russel Grant. Take your pick.

I really like the muted colors and the "detailed simplicity". Really nice work. :)

I like how the little guy is triple echoed, by the dagger and the shadow, or reflection? Very thought provoking and lovely watercolor use!

Intriguing and disconcerting and modernly victorian!
