Banes at 12:00AM, March 30, 2017



They say that how hands are drawn is a good indicator of the technical expertise of the artist.

A river in Egypt

Banes at 12:00AM, Feb. 23, 2017

HyenaHell at 12:00AM, Feb. 17, 2017



Welcome back, gang! Er, can I call y'all “gang”? Is that too informal or too assumptive about your willingness for complicity in my extra curricular activities? Eh, too bad. Once you're in the gang, there's only one way out. Now, while you're letting that sink in ...

“Dude, what happened to your face?”
“Why are you carrying ...

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Jan. 27, 2017
