I created this drawing with green and black ball point pen, along with color pencil for the sky. It is my artistic political statement on greed. Money is a sad but necessary evil in our reality, replacing for many the spiritual drive to find a greater purpose in human existence. We work harder to get more money to buy more toys to keep ourselves away from our"self". Greed grows out of fear of not having anything on the inside, so it is our false bloodlife on the outside. It's all about intention. Be true to the self, or at least seek it out. This is so hard to do, since God turned to paper... All comments welcome

Very good work---nice surreal feel, Andrew. Placing everything upon classic architectual columns suggests this problem goes back for centuries. Yes, I've come to the same conclusion about our lives and what money does to us---or doesn't let us do for ourselves. We become paper thin ourselves as a result. Very good work.

Artist Reply: Thank you for your words, Charles. Trying not to grow to thin myself...tough to keep one's eyes fully open and be included in society at the same time. Really enjoy your work and artistic statement.
