  1. Charlie Callahan,

    Simply PHENOMENAL work! I cannot get over the fact this is not 3-D?! It looks incredible. I'd drive up from San Diego to N. California to see these pieces of art … just fantastic. I studied marine biology and the urchin is a favorite. What a talent you are.

    Lloyd, thanks for sharing the photo! Simply stunning!
