Mark Suntres - 3 men on the moon !
Mark traveled into space with this last piece. From the moon one can see the earth and a lovely red sails boat. Mark used his imagination and some cleverly placed stencils.
The American flag, the rocket n the 3 astronauts are a reminder of the power of the country Space Forces. And 2 green 👽👽 ! Well done Mark ! 🚀🌕🌟🎩

Mark Suntres - I gave Mark this book “Bridges” for his birthday. He really really loves it and keeps on bringing it back for inspiration. Here you can see his vision, the transformation from the original photo. It is colorful, lively with angels in the sky, few trees, brightly lit up windows + caractères n bike along the quay. Always so wonderful this seemingly joyous universe of Mark with details that pops up as you observe the piece closely
Excellent work Excellent artist 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👨🏻‍🎨🌟

Peter Kuczwara - Peter told me about few of the creatures from this drawing and few I can’t really decipher yet. Let me tell you, there is a bird in flight then the little figure at the top right he told me it was a boy in an airplane, frankly it is so good it enchantes me, the perfect synthesis of one subject drawn with such confidence. Then there is that long figure with big feet not sure who that is an the one under the boy in an airplane, evocative of a donkey ? Time will tell. In any case it is as usual pretty fascinating 🌟🌟🌟

Peter Kuczwara- Oh my ! Look at those people and animals ! And the one that makes me smile so big, the little figure with knobby knees and a
fancy dress + hair or hat, don’t know who that is but Peter knows for sure. Then the donkey kind of grinning at you and the guy on the left with a very big hand. Always such a delight and also so much humor in his work. PK your work is outstanding 🌟🌟🌟
