SHEET CAKE, FOR KEEDS

This ugly monster is strapped to the light table and CANNOT BE MOVED during its accretion. Unfinished as it is you can certainly see the infantile nature of the spontaneous architecture, the ravaged ground of being, the torture-adoration of the spifflicants. But can you predict what will appear on the right hand, or "modern" side of the paper? Of course you can!

My best guess is that there will be a stadium of observers on the right side in tiers of seats, watching this ritual with maws agape.

A large bloated creature whose gaping mouth the staricase in the center is descending into?

I'm curious, what brand of pencils and paper do you use for works like this?

I make all of my own paper from wood I raise and slaughter just for that purpose. The charcoal is made from the rubble from burned schools and churches. The pencil bodies are made from slivers of the one, true cross.

All of the other stuff is from Walgreens.

None genuine without this stern visage.

A white handkerchief is being feverishly flapped in the air by something concealed in the left wing of the papyrus. Beneath lies a tiny dish of salt, a mandarine, and a blurry photograph of the left hand side in better times hallowed by a couple of lit 2 dollar shop candles.

Vaguely reminiscent of "The Patuxay" (also known as the Concrete Monster) building in Vientiane, Laos. Cheers!
