"Freedom to do what?"
Pertinent. Hard-hitting.
Given the general dumbing down- and you might disagree- how many think at all?

The pen work is fine, detailed- as usual.Thank you for sharing.

And I had left that first anon comment- only the first one.

These look very promising. Are they part of something new that you're working on?

'freedom to what' was created for the independence day themed Mint Lounge (due on 9th august 2008). there is a lot of noise and color-coded merchandise generated on the eve of these various 'Days' (Father, Mother, Friendship, Valentine, AIDS - anything will do). thought it was important to put up a mental post-it with the niggling question.

It’s simply stunning.

This is Ahimaz who just bought your Kari yesterday, wanting to buy it since the time it arrived. I found the cover art quite a spectacle. Can’t wait to finish it.

Nice day.

Read Albert Camus - The Rebel.
Might get a feel of "freedom for what".
