Kamikazbees

Kamikazbees is the result of a thought I had while on the throne of seclusion. I was thinking of World War II, as I am usually found doing, then thought of bees coming in for a landing on a flower. I made the sunflower look like the Rising Sun flag (of the Japanese Empire). AsContinue reading “Kamikazbees”

Let’s Talk Commissions

I do commission work. If you’ve got something in mind, need something big, different from my norm, etc., I will take on the job.
