Hi Teddy thanx very much! Hope you are having a creative weekend and get all the stuff done for the assessment. Have you sprayed your piece yet? I really want to see that - I definitely agree with Elena that you should try out some colours. I am quite fond of the micky mouse - I it definitely fulfills your aim of making the viewer feel happy.
