I just love the creature’s attitude. Tremendous art.

plasma
the substance of fire
hidden
in the sky
in the stars of the night
in the growing green of the life
in the frozen mountain peaks
and in the wind

the blood in my vessels

Do i see mountains inside the beast! I like this mucho. It belongs on a very cool jacket. Or perhaps a large wall-hanging. What we make now is ancient in another day, an it survive, and this shall survive.

Bless the web, preserver and distributor. Thanks for the cool art, Thomas.

Nice job.......
looks like it should be a tatoo for a tribes man down under.

Thanks everybody. I actually encountered this fellow while I was coming off morphine during a recent visit to hospital. There was a serious level of very enjoyable hallucinations one night in which I met this fellow and lots of other human-animal hybrids. He looked at me as if to say to himself “oh, anther human, whatever…”

I also had another vision of this wall frieze inside a dome, which contained all the early anthropomorphic art of every culture from African to European to Mayan/Aztec which they all blended perfectly into one another.

The title come from plasma as in blood and as a energy force in the universe. The colours are completely new for me and all came from this "trip" but I am glad I used them.

Good idea about the t-shirt.
