This is harder on my eyes than Guitar Hero.

Sometimes I worry that people will get bored because I post work by a number of artists quite regularly, but then I realize that I don’t particularly care because I post what I like, not what I think will generate viewers… And I remember how mad I was when public schools started switching to “everyone should win a prize” instead of “the best people get the prizes” — so I again bring you some wonderful geometric work on Davy by Vincent Hocquet from Beautiful Freak Tattoo in St. Idesbald, Belgium.

I continue to greatly admire his skill.
