    This is great work. I really like how the curves pull my eyes all around the drawing as I watch it.

    WOW that dude REEEALLY can’t speak English!!

    Bollt’s work is absolutely stunning. If I had the money, I’d purchase some fine prints of his work. The Marmaid Wave, Lion Dragon and Sun Mover pieces would be my first purchases as they are my favourite.

    Excellant work David!

    Wow…this stuff is hypnotic. The way your eyes just take in the flow of the whole work almost sucks you in with her. Beautiful…

    The use of form and colour is so skillful that you almost don’t see the tension of conversation between the seahorse and the mermaid. What could they be saying?

    Simply beautiful.
