Pontus

Makes me think of a horse in norse mythology. It has eight legs so it runs really fast.

Hi Pontus, thanks for the link about Sleipnir! That is one badass horse. I love crazy mythological creatures.
Of course, this drawing is about the "more is better" obsession that pervades our consumerist culture. I suppose that in the absence of contemporary mythology, we create ridiculously elaborate products (giant screen TVs, Hummers, smart phones that can run your life, etc.) to have something to worship and lust over - they are our new Gods.
