The Bearer of the Seal Skull by zypherax The Bearer of the Seal Skull by zypherax
"In the ever changing land of sky, there lived a man who was not a man.
He spent his life proudly flaunting the object he held most dear, regardless of the many places through which he ran.
It was the skull of the mightiest of flying beasts that could not swim,
The skull of a Leopard Seal; the pride of he who was not him.
Mostly, the air of Sky was thick with throngs of things that did fly,
and thus the earth was littered with those that did die.
that is, of course, apart from the man who was not a man, as he would often walk across the land, collecting the best pickings from the corpses of the earth,
Rending flesh, sepperating bones, and procuring skulls, he finally found the head he had been avidly searching for since his birth;
That of his mother, the majestic Seal, who spent her life soaring through the air, for she could not swim".

I initially sketched the seal skull at the Boston Museum of Science, and filled in the rest of the illustration afterward. that was nearly a year ago now...

Your 'sketches' are unspeakably amazing and unique. I can't help but to be jealous, because you have a certain talent I guarantee that no one can touch.

I am happy that you enjoy them, but they can indeed be touched; I allow most interested people to look through my sketchbooks if they ask... (pun)

seriously though, thank you.
