    wow. hey. don’t really know what you’re going for here with this animated art, but it’s awful. and it’s close to blasphemous, and it’s not even funny. i’m rather disgusted, in fact, no offence. so try respecting art once and a while, and appreciating it.

      Julia – too many people don’t care about art and I’m psyched that you do. This is my interpretation of the piece…I see an inspired impressionist painting of well-to-do people on a sad urban street…and I think of the sad, needless, but inspiring incident of the murder of Martha and Thomas Wayne.

      The artist is meant to paint and the audience is meant to interpret.

      This isn’t disrespecting art – it’s playing with it to hopefully give it a new audience and make it memorable…and the few hundred people that visit everyday, and the emails I get from people who really do enjoy it spur me to continue.
