"Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable, because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you're stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there's nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while there's a peanut butter cup or an english toffee but they're gone too fast and the taste is fleeting. So you end up with nothing but broken bits of hardened jelly and teeth-shattering nuts. If you're desperate enough to eat those, all you've got left is an empty box filled with useless brown paper wrappers."

edit- seriously, nobody ever watched the X-Files?

I think you have some good beginnings here. I am responding here to your request for comments on your last picture.
My first reaction to your style is the use of both line and "paint" I think you should tone back your lines a little... and be more tentative as to where you use them. Line that folows the form is most effective, and should not stand out more than the content of the picture (if you know what I mean). In otherwords... youre letting the line speak too much, and your use of it is not making sense. For example, the scribbly line on the palm of the hand.

This style of art can be very effective, but you need to refine it just a bit.... think about where you are placing your lines and why. You have an excellent sense of form. Use the line to bring that out! You asked for a comment and got an earful! :)
