    True, he was overshadowed a bit by dear old Grouch, but a great piece nonetheless. What I like best is how the figure's pose and expression, as well as the subdued (excellent choice of word Ray) colours seem to portray the particular pointlessness of that conflict.

    To me he's silently screaming "What the F am I doing here!".

    Was this your intention Steve or am I getting it all wrong?
