Art: The U Line: Duke Riley

I just passed an intricate, panoramic puzzle in the store, one that made my head turn. No; not the airbrushed looking, ocean scene one.  There are mermaids and an octopus, though.

Looking through his artist statement and other projects, though, he stands out as a unique contemporary artist as well.

Collaboration with Riley, with a nicely done website:
