Deep Trouble by shoomlah Deep Trouble by shoomlah
My piece for LTD Art Gallery's Tentacles show that opened this weekend! If you're in the area, it's definitely worth scoping it out while it's still up.

I haven't done pyrography/wood burning in any substantial capacity since high school, but I wanted to get away from digital for a bit since I so rarely get to sell originals at shows- this was my compromise where I didn't have to worry about finding all my paints. I've also had the idea of a nautilus-shaped helmet for something like eight years now, so I'm finally MAKING THAT HAPPEN in a real way

Oh nice! That is a rad helmet design. I would totally find a reason to wear one of those if it were real. :)
