Very nice work!!! I like how part of the figures' heads are implied rather than obviously stated. Lovely stylized lines.... But, when I first saw these, I was thinking "huge art posters" rather than little-bitty cards.  Of course they would be great as cards, but these images would be just awesome as posters!

Circe, i'm sorry you didn't understand the meaning of 'erspoetic', it's a term i tried to translate from my native tongue, and most likely mistranslated.. i didn't mean to provide a "cursory freeze-dried explanation" for the term, just thought people will understand better what i was talking about, since it does come from latin, and i assumed i got the translation a bit wrong but not as unrelated, as i now understand it was from your reply ..  Embarrassed

i could try to expand the explanation if you are interested, it really isn't such a detached-from-earth type of word and my purpose in posting here isn't to upset anyone or make them feel bad that they not supposedly insiders. i am just a ****ing newly high school graduate that is not related what so ever to any artsy-shmartsy "insiders" and barley knows something about this world, but yet i truly don't appreciate your contempt to my post- "Is this one of those chi-chi artsy words that only supposed "insiders" know?" or your approach to other people's work, even if you don't like it.


Oh no, viburnum!  My intention was not one of contempt!!! I'm sorry you misread my post.  Regarding my quest to understand your word "erspoetic": The English dictionary changes so frequently to make room for technology and new age jargon that I was thinking I'd missed a word that was ultra-current!  (I'm a real word freak)  As to the rest of my post, I didn't mean that YOU had provided a "freeze-dried, cursory" definition!  I was basically asking that if anyone were kind enough to answer, I'd appreciate a straightforward, non-esoteric definition! 

My own Latin is extremely rusty.  However, my son is a recent summa cum laude college grad who majored in Latin.  When I see him again, I'll ask his help with an understanding of the Latin translation side, and get back with you.

Hope this helps explain.  I merely meant to ask a question, not to insult.

The Twiggy one gets my top vote!  Too cool!  Makes a point, and does so succinctly. The first two are wonderful as well, but I think "Twiggy" would make Andy Warhol grin! Keep up with the good stuff.

Would someone please tell me the meaning of the word "erspoetic"?  And not just a cursory freeze-dried explanation.  I've been making art for 25 years, and this is a new term for me.... Call me clueless.  M-w.com is also clueless; so is dictionary.com.  Is this one of those chi-chi artsy words that only supposed "insiders" know?
