this piece has been hanging around my portfolio for nigh on a year now (my fine arts portfolio has been somewhat stagnant. damn you fibers work!) and i like to pull it out from time to time. i had a friend named justin who did entirely too much lsd and had one giant dread on his head that made him look like he was wearing a snail shell. i was a bit envious, so i drew myself a snail shell too.
