    Your creations always have this freaky biological/wetware feel to them. I was actually moved around 1:35 to throw the damned thing in a bowl of water.

    Your stuff always illicits an emotional component in my reactions to them.

    I don't know if I can pay you a higher compliment, though!

    Thanks for your kind words as usual Adrenalynn Yeah original idea was a underwater swimming thing.... but that just sounds like way too much headache, one little mistake and it's a goner. So flapping around suit me just fine for now. And yeah... I often try to make things that are somewhat biological, mother nature is the best designer... or maybe it's more that we just appreciate something a bit familiar, and hard wired to be attracted to them.
