Deliveries and Lessons
The alien signs carved in the stone walls lead me to the wing with the master's chambers.
Nobody got in my way or questioned me, my harness and my tray were my passport into the inner sanctum. The guards that passed me, that I sometimes saw beating slaves, all wore swords and daggers in scabbards or just strapped on. I couldn't help but think how easy it would be to snatch a weapon and begin my war on the moon's tyrant. As much as I wanted it, I knew I was no hero. I even lacked the courage to steal a piece of Ga Driel's breakfast from the tray I carried. Alright, I tasted a little but I didn't like it much.

I'm the product of many influences. I am first and foremost a surrealist continuing the Surrealist tradition. I'm also really into Illustration and advertising art from years past. I keep trying to bring back that 1900 aesthetic. Fantastic and Macabre art are also playgrounds of mine, pretty much anything that sends you into dreamland.
