Just wanted to leave a comment about "Life"...
I first stumbled on this piece about a month ago. Probably only looked at it for a total of 8 seconds at that time, but it haunted me...I found it again recently and find myself drawn back to it again and again. I've always enjoyed art but this much emotional response is unusual for me. It is indeed "somehow strangely sad" as one person noted.

Anyway, I don't know if anyone would appreciate this (but I'll share it anyway), but there is a Bible verse that always come to my mind when I think about this piece:

Psalm 39:4 "LORD, make me to know my end,
And what is the measure of my days,
That I may know how frail I am."

Yep - a homage to the "Feel Good, Inc.", video. The "islands in the sky" motif harks back to Roger Dean's album covers for Yes, especially "Close To The Edge" (1973).

I think Carl has it right. It's a mash-up of various styles (Dali and Hewitt are certainly at the forefront) but to dismiss it straight because it's influenced is a bit narrow minded. I linked it because I liked it and not because he had taken Dali's elephants and Hewitt's flying rocks from the Gorillaz. Doc Hammer's stuff (Laura's link above) is okay and competent but it doesn't excite me.
