  1. They’re pretty, but isn’t there something sort of easy and obviously seductive about combining random maps with the shapes of random butterflies? Both elements have their appeal, but what does the combination really mean? Anything? Or, is it just pretty fluff?

  2. True enough, but does everything have to be complex? Isn’t it enough that two pleasing things brought together in this project yield a pleasing result? I feel like I tend to overthink my own work, and it’s actually refreshing to just appreciate something that’s fairly simple.

  5. Wow, this is absolutely beautiful, and I don’t see anything simple about it. I love it :)
