The pilot with the gaze was begging to be paired with a random object. The colorfully bitten apple started as a separate idea, but felt like the perfect compliment. Nature skies and sailboats were originally just going to be more assorted paper, but I thought it would have gotten too loud. On a part of a bed found in a dumpter near Embajadores, Madrid.
The pilot went down first, then the layout of the right side of the flag took some thought to conjure.
My flag holds jealousy and temptation, a fantasitcal mixture of natural scenes, a the creativity and drive to burst from the frame.
