what appeared from out of my brush

I've long enjoyed drawing Dalma Daesa (that's the Korean way to refer to Bodhidharma, First Patriarch of Ch'an/Zen/Seon Buddhism). A rather good-looking manifestation of him appeared from out of my brush-pen last night:

Jason of Mississippi to Korea very kindly had my old stamp remade for no charge. I think I might just send the original of this image to him as a thank-you.

I know you're just funnin', but for what it's worth, you've got a much larger picture, and that stamp would look too small against the Alien. But if you really, really want that stamp, I can either send you a second (smaller) Alien pic with the stamp on it, or you can send back the pic I sent you and I'll stamp it.

Whatever works. I'm easy like that.

Nobody does Dalma Daesa like you do Dalma Daesa.

My fave is still the one on your sidebar., but I've gotta admit the chop adds a certain je ne sais quoi.

Your artwork looks great as always, and I think the stamp does too! Would love to have a piece of your work.
