The accompanying text based on the exhibit theme 'Attraction':

Attraction is forever.
The future holds many mysteries dark and bright. One certainty is that attraction will forever be the driving life-force for all creatures great and small. Without strong attraction (one object drawing toward another) existence as we know it is impossible.

Picayune Productions in in the process of filming the movie 'Comic Ruse' and it seems that they are using a character (Mammoth) that I created several years ago.

I received this email recently from Roland the films director:

"The film is back on track. It actually stalled briefly when I got a job writing for Marvel Comics along side Orson Scott Card (Red Prophet still in stores now!), but now that the project is over, I'm pressing ahead with the film. Scenes that highlight "The Mammoth" have actually been filmed already!"


The commission image (Shalla-Bal) is nearly done:
