Ha ha, very cool, I love the idea of riding on a pill bug!! :D I used to find them hiding under leaf litter by a pond, it was fun poking them and seeing how they curl up to escape predators.  Adorable concept, thanks for sharing!

I love pillbugs/rolypolies! So naturally I can't even describe how awesome this is! For some reason I'm getting a star-warsy theme from this :D And the fact that it's done on canvas.... just, wow. I have so much respect for the artist, and even just traditional-medium artists in general.  This is inspiring me to actually learn how to paint... then I remember how much I suck at it XD

Acrylic is a very hard medium to work and blend with, so I give you your props for painting this! AMAZING!!

I went on a trip through Europe this summer, and chose Paris as my first destination just so I'd be able to catch your gallery exhibit (: As I recall, this was the painting that caught my attention the most. I was truly excited to be able to see some of Kei's and your work in person, and I hope to some day own one of each of your works (:
