I love the colors! Kind of like a new school tattoo style: bright, crazy color schemes, cartoony but trippy at the same time.

Oh wow... I'm really loving the atmospheric nature of this piece. The colours you've used really help symbolize a youthful, childish, yet at the same time haunting and almost upsetting nature. That's actually a metaphoric idea I already have with society and its bitter negligence of the safety and happiness of children.
Great stuff, I can see many different levels you've hit with this piece.

It has a Mark Ryden sort of feeling, but with your touch and identity.

Cool work :)

I sense a dave cooper-esque universe, but still very much your own. totally love the wacky and weirdness of this piece, wonderful colorwork and the shiny effect on everything by adding carefully added white.
splendid ! fav !

Love the minimal colour scheme. All the little toys make me wish I was little again, or at the very least able to play with my little brother.

I love this, somebody said it reminded them of Ryden, which I totally disagree with [it looks nothing like his stuff at all]. It has more in common with Dave Cooper's work really, but at the same time I still think this is very original in style. Great work
