It started with me finding this sweet tree frog outside when I moved a bucket.

"Oh! I have a 'Nightmare challenge. You'll do well in it, little one!"

Since I had zero ideas on how to use him, I put him on a glass and shot him in several poses, then let him go.

Then, as predicted... my mind went straight to an egg, so... I took out an egg and shot it... then my eye.
Well... I didn't take out my eye... I just shot it.


Yes, the egg is that bumpy.

Weird, I know.

This appears as surreal as nightmarish, but it sure makes me fidgety. Either way, it's a disturbing image that's artfully imagined and crafted. Most jarring of all is the pink teardrop. Nice work.

Surrealism! I like how you managed to make this so very efficient, the composition is very good. This eye is just perfect.

Wonderfully odd! I canít imagine how you thought of this. There has got to be a story. I hope you have shared it!

That's strangely specific. And well put together.

Puzzling. Leaving a lot to the imagination, which I like.
