I'm feeling some religious symbology in here, am I right?

Yeah, a strict Catholic upbringing oughta do that. As a child I was always fascinated by the imagery in Bible stories, but I am no longer a follower of any organized faith. But choosing to no longer follow Catholicism doesn't stop me from having visions of crucifixions, saints, angels, demons, snakes, forbidden fruit, and so forth. The imagery is permanently ingrained into my subconscious.

right on! I was raised christian (protestant of some sort, I guess) but I'm not really with any religion either. Buddhism mostly. Lately, I've been looking at bible stories as less of facts and more like myths. When you start looking at all of it with an eye for mythology, the stories take on a new... interest. Very strange stuff, but we take that strangeness for granted. Ah, now I'm rambling! The point is I'm digging your work.

A soft touch will ballpoint allows me to shade, it's very different from the cross-hatching of pen and ink.

My head is not quite on straight, you see... but as long as we call it "imagination" and not "insanity"... as long as you and I can derive some level of satisfaction and fulfillment from my psychotic babble of images... then I take my troubled mind as partly a burden but also partly a gift.

Well said. By the way, I think, art is a kind of insanity. It's a disease, which allows us to see blue bananas and flying elephants with water hair filled with brown fishes ;)
