i’m jealous of austin power

Eyes that look like fallen cherry blossoms, and tiny teeth nestled into a little blue mouth. I’m trying really hard to think of something clever to write about these delicate {yet somewhat disturbing} watercolor paintings by New York based artist Austin Power, but truthfully, the only thing in my head is this:  wow

    Beautiful! In a creepy way, of course.

    Never underestimate the power of perfectly executed white space.
