i was astonished about his entertaining stxle of writing, while telling even thrilling stories about the island and the people there - after that i read "kon tiki", the adventure, that made him famous, also very good... :D

you both did a fantastic job on this piece... a persons first instinct might be a comparison to Easter Island but this goes much further than a simple depiction of a real place... for me the eye is saying "is it safe to come out now" or a waiting to be born... the old man in the foreground has an expression of regret for a ruined world... at least for me... I'm faving here because I already have a couple of Roberts works... I've known of this genre and seen it from a very casual, kind of glancing perspective over the years but it has truly become probably my favorite "traditional" style over the last couple months...

I wish I was good enough to do a collaboration *sigh*
This is absolutely magnificent. The extreme detail, the wonderful shading, the great perspective; not to mention the meeting of two minds to come up with something so fabulous. I think you're my hero!

This is unusually sublime, coming from you. I often find your work unsettling as well as interesting; this collaboration seems more peaceful and contemplative. As always, your textures are wonderful. :D
