immersed in the electromagnetic waves - images and words
"No one taught me the dangers of trying to find happiness on tree tops." The black & white that accompanies the thought intrigued me. Another such combination of words and image – "love is a knife through the jugular vein, son." I like Paulo's dark backgrounds, artsy photographs, and deep thoughts. Though some of the site is in English, some words and many visitor's comments are in Portuguese – I found it well worth using a translator. Then again, you could always just enjoy the pretty pictures...;~))

repository of ideas, analysis and contemporary thought, exploring every aspect of the arts and industry of comics

experimental Flash art

Be sure to click on the mirage and if you like it, you'll probably enjoy the glass toy too. I really like nocturno and sky lines and the info link helped shed some light on the motivation behind Leo's art and design space – I like it...;~)) [bright::light]
