Me and two buddies collaborated on the sketch, Paul Graham drew the face, Nick Kondo added the tattoo-like designs, and I added the hair and colored it.

photoshop playing with abstracts

this one has no focus, but it's playful
this one kinda reminds me of a beach in Japan
this is one best one from today, i dig it
this one is pleasing to my eyes for some reason... maybe the psuedo symmetry with no color.
