Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

I really like the idea ... eyes are very strong in his eyes. Perhaps the target takes a starring role! a subjective opinion! A hug, Adela

@Adela Fonts: Thank you Adela! I hope you like my eyes...I like to stare a lot and take in whatever I see even the tiniest details...sometimes it triggers an idea for something else....a hug, Abena !

Drôle et original !

@365: Oui en effet ! j'ete tres ennuyeuse alors j'ai pense de faire ca...Merci !

Rick from Toronto, Canada

A very creative idea, and I look forward to the black and white. As Basile mentioned, reminiscent of Juliette's self-portrait. You should have a look at her work if you already haven't.

30 Jan 2013 4:55pm

@Rick: I think the b&w is better ! So do stay tuned. Oh yep I have, she's got some really excellent stuff. You and Basile have some pretty good feedback, thanks !
