thanks everyone. i feel really good about this one. i don't really have any perspective on it 'cause i just started and finished it all last night. i had a real hard time with the text. it was hand done and black outlined like everything else, but it just kept getting lost. so i just filled the whole thing in white and left it. the blank space to the left of the plug at the bottom still looks weird to me. usually i'm all for negative space, but there really isn't much with this one except for in that bottom corner. i dunno. i need to stop staring at it and look at it again tomorrow.
