    I love how instead of letting vandalism continue you’re actually motivating people to do art instead.

    I love how in each piece of art you create you tell a story, you add things that draw people in by the smallest detail, as to where you can stare at it for hours without a bore, because you just keep finding more and more symbolism and love put in the painting each time. Your work never fails to amaze me, rather its something simple or astronomical.
