This incredible collaborative drawing will be part of the LUSO-American Surrealism of the 21st Century exhibition open now at the Cullis Wade Depot Gallery at Mississippi State University. I am very excited to have contributed to this project. I really think it is a brilliant concept, the outcome is incredible and it was a real joy to work on.
