    I don't care much for straight up surrealism, but I like your painting style. If it had some sense of story it would be a fantastic illustration.
    What's the medium?

    Awesome! I've been in love with your work for a long time.

    I think I preferred, in the sketch you posted, when the 45 was on the octopus rather than the robot. It made it seem like the octopus had a purpose, rather than just being any old octopus on a robot's head. And the fact that plenty of robots have numbers on them, but you don't usually see an octopus with one.

    But great work just the same!

    you need to post more often, images like this a breath of fresh air.

    I'm trying to figure out the pun with this...playing with ideas of mindflayers and don quioxte and I'm not having any luck...I'll set it as my background and see if I can find it.

    I wish there was another spot of that reddish orange to triangulate the ball and the eye, though.

    oh shoot, I have it now! but you posted it a few days late, VE day was on the 7th. (unless I'm wrong)

    Try to pull up ball closer. I have feel that could work better if ball is in direction of octopus head.
    By the way realy like those little brush strokes.

    oooh, now these are two unlikely companions who need to occupy a kids book adventure. I would have loved something like that as a kid
